Tuesday 30/4/19 TOGs to St John's Chapel, Weardale

Post by Matthew Cunningham » Thu Apr 25, 2019 5:24 pm

I'll be leading Tuesday 30/4/19 ride.

We'll start 9.30 Sam's. The ride is approx. 80 miles so we should be back in Pont for 4.00 pm

The route is over into Weardale and therefore NOT flat, there are 3-4 significant climbs and 2 pretty tricky steep to very step descents and several other longer faster descents. Road surfaces are standard country fare ie varying from OK to poor. We'll have to watch out for lambs and sheep on many of the roads.

We will be in quite isolated areas and weather can be cooler and windier than forecast, so please come prepared. Lunch stop will be in St John's Chapel.

The route is as follows : https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29812757

Cheers,
Matt

Weather is looking reasonable for 30/4/19. There may be fog and/or mist in the morning slow to clear so could expect some in the Tyne Valley on way out, so worth bringing some form of lighting preferably front and rear.

Hello Matthew, I’m planning to join you tomorrow, however, as you’re planning to come through Stamfordham I’ll meet up with you there, if that’s ok?

We should be coming through Stamfordham about 10.00am, if we're early we'll wait. See you tomorrow.

Matt
