Anybody planning to head down to Coniston on 23 March?

I would consider it if I can get a pass for the day and could get a couple of others to car share.
According to RAC route planner it's 150 miles / 3 hours from my place in Renfrew.

It would be a down and back on the one day for me.

Just gauging interest meantime ....

It would be nice to support our friends from the south , after all we would like them to come up for our national.

173 miles for me.
Not sure but it is on the radar. Too far for a day trip for me so would need to head down on the friday or come back on the sunday.
I will give it some thought. :wink:

I did Fort William with Gazz in a day trip a couple of years ago and that was a bit much with the driving/length of day.

We stayed in a great Youth Hostel when we were down at Coniston, ZZ booked it so he'll remember the details :wink:

Its a cracking good ride, lovely mix of stuff. we stayed in YHA, but I seem to remember when chatting to our English brethren in the pub that there were decent B & Bs for not much more than the YH. I'd do that the next time. Hmmm, something to think aboot...

I'm on holiday when the Lakes Road ride is on however the mention of the passes fills me with dread. Having done Wrynose , Hardknott , Kirkstone etc on my motorbike the thought of cycling up them scares me :shock:
