Adhoc Rough Stuff Fellowship Ride Round North Windermere

A last minute email from Nick to let me and others know that an adhoc RSF ride was planned for today saw 7 of us gathering at Wilf's cafe in Staveley for a ride in the early winter sunshine....

After a ride along the cyclepath to Windermere we took the bridleway down to Droomer. Then onto this bridleway through Lickbarrow.

There were good views over to the West, such as this one of the Coniston Fells

Once across the ferry we rode along the West side of Windermere to Wray Castle.

Lunch was taken at the castle, where we took in the to Red Screes and the Fairfield Horseshoe.

And here to the Langdale Fells

The offroad cyclepath made for easy car-free riding from Low Wray to Clappersgate. We then climbed up through Skelghyll Woods and past Jenkins Crag.

The late afternoon sunlight was showing the Lakes off to their best.

Surely the best viewpoint for Windermere, high above Ecclerigg.

After dropping down into Troutbeck, we rode through Limefitt Park and up onto the Longmire Road.
The last of the sun lighting up the "Troutbeck Horseshoe".
We completed our ride by descending to Moor Top Road, and cycling along the cyclepath back to Wilf's cafe for an after ride brew.
Another grand "RSF" ride in great company!
