RSF ride from Low Newton

Bridleway at Low dale Park
A great day out with the RSF, we met at Low Newton at 10am, our target the low fells south of Grizedale forest. A better turnout than my last ride out with the South Lakes group, seven of us in total. The "Hat Trick" cafe was closed so we rode down to the "Mallard" cafe for our morning cake stop. Cake consumed we rode by Beckside and Bigland before dropping down to cross the river Leven to Haverthwaite. Onwards across "The Causeway" to Bouth. An old County Road took us over to Colton, lunch was taken near the top looking out over the Rusland valley. Then on a bridleway to High Ickenthwaite, and a descent to the valley floor at Force Forge. Crossing to Low Dale Park another bridleway up and over to Field Head, then down the road to Lakeside for the afternoon cake stop. Having watched the lake steamer "Swan" arrive and depart, we cycled mainly on the cycle path back to our cars at Low Newton.
