3 audax rides on Saturday 16 May 2015 from The Lakes School, Troutbeck Bridge near Windermere (20 mins from J36 M6). The 100km La'al Lakeland is a short but challenging introduction to the steeper bits of South Lakeland with a very relaxed minimum speed. At 200km, The Cumbrian is a full day of riding with about 4,000m of descents to enjoy and includes a spectacular sections around Buttermere and Wasdale. If that's not enough, then the 300km Westmorland Spartans offers a really long day out up to Bellingham, back via the Scottish Borders and (if the weather is kind) a magical moonlit crossing of the Kirkstone Pass. HQ is the school gym where riders can stay the night before/after and the pavilion for pre- and post-ride catering. BYO sleeping bag/mat. Start times 07:00, 08:00 and 09:00. Entry fees £5 - £8.
