B1 ride report - Tebay - Martin Stringfellow
Martin, Jane, Karen, Steve, Paul, and Ruth comprised B1 ride which departed from Tebay directed by Shane Blackmore. It’s always thrilling to travel down new roads, but I can’t remember a better experience than the scenery, tranquil roads, and hot sunshine that we enjoyed today. The verges scented with Meadowsweet and Rosebay Willowherb, and the views of nearby mountains were our constant companions. Well done to whoever found the Velo Cafe in Temple Sowerby which came at the perfect 2/3rds distance allowing leisurely recharging for the final push back to Tebay. Most of us found time for rehydration in the beer garden where we relaxed feeling the post-ride satisfaction of approximately 50 miles of happy ups and downs.
