Wrinklies Chasing The Sun 6, 1st-3rd June 2020
« on: November 14, 2019, 01:06:32 pm »
Hello K clubbers,
I have been beavering away with some input from Richard (richtea) and here are the details of next years Wrinklies Chasing The Sun 6 trip.
All the information you need is here in post #1

This time we start in Wheyrigg Cumbria, stop over in Uttoxeter and carry on to Worthing.
Here is a map link to Wheyrigg Hall Click Here

I have stayed at Wheyrigg Hall a few times, it’s very friendly with good food (chips that have never seen a freezer) and good beer. It’s in a remote location but has everything you need.

The nearest garages to Wheyrigg Hall are 3 and 4.5 miles away, map links below

Click Here for Garmin Routes

I have aligned the routes so that Tomtom and Garmin should follow the same route. Set your device to avoid motorways.

I think the routes are pretty much finalised so feel free to download and take a look. To be on the safe side in case I make any last minute changes download again closer to the event.

Tuesday 2nd
9.00      Set off from Whetrigg with a full tank please.
10.50   Coffee stop at Devils Bridge, Kirkby Lonsdale (40 minute stop)

Well what a lovely route! Mark me as interested and I'll likely book everything when my balance is looking less scared. I.e. end of month.

Thanks Rae :)

Booked, Rae!

What are we doing for food at Wheyrigg, by the way? Going off-piste?

If we can fit a 20L corny keg on my bike we'll be sorted with beer for... ok 40 pints maybe isn't that much.
