Ullswater and Alston
A loop around the northern section of Ullswater, the Eden and Lowther Valleys before a climb of Hartside. Mainly quiet roads with some great views (in good weather). Lots of options for cafes other than controls.
From Hallbankgate the route goes south west to the western shores of Ullswater and through Pooley Bridge. Hopefully the new bridge will be finished for the event. The southern section of the route goes through Shap, Orton and across Great Asby Scar Nature Reserve before heading North. The route crosses the river Eden at Appleby before heading to Melmerby to begin the climb of Hartside and a final control at Alston before the arrivee at Hallbankgate. Start in the community café and finish in the pub. Something to eat at the finish included in your entry fee. Entry is limited and will close when the events are full.
