For our sixth year, The Bay Dash at 115km is one of the trilogy of rides making up our Wrynose or Bust event. It is a charitable fund raising sportive that to date has raised nearly £30,000 for our charities. The three routes are as follows: Wrynose or Bust 188km (117 miles); Bay Dash 115km (72 miles) and The Silverdale Sling 60km (37 miles).
Starting and finishing at Halton Army Training Camp near Lancaster, this route tracks through the hills of the southern Lake District around the top end of Morecambe Bay before taking the long climb up Bigland Hill near Haverthwaite. Continuing on to High Newton before descending the technically tricky Tow Top before returning to Halton via Levens, Heversham, Priest Hutton and Sunnybank.
We offer our riders some cracking countryside around North Lancashire and Cumbria and any net surplus goes to our chosen charities. The event is organised by the Rotary Club of Lancaster and a few cycling friends and this year we are mainly supporting Unique Kidz.
We have car parking at the camp, toilets, event timing, feed station, marshalls, hot food at the finish and showers. We have two recovery vehicles and have the support of RAYNET to help with communications.
