There's a nice campsite on the shore just a short roll away from the start point, not sure they'll be open this early in the year though...

Count me in, be good to meet up with you all. Will see if I can bring something suitable to ride. May have my 97 Cindercone together, if not will have a 98/99 Specialized Ground Control.

I was hoping you'd be warning us about heavy sleet Rob, it normally does the opposite to whatever you forecast.

Great news on the savoury snacks, but the real question is will you be windmilling through the Bluebell Cafe or will you be saving that for the Grizedale visitor centre at lunch?

Is the alternate Grizedale Visitors centre food stall still open ?

I'm not sure whether the burger van will be parked up Ben.
I suspect it will be but maybe one of the locals can confirm...?

Otherwise I'm sure that Rob won't mind bringing along enough snacks for everyone.
