C group 'special' ride Brampton and the Eden Valley, 31 July 2016

Easter 2015 16
I am planning a C ride 'special' to the Eden Valley starting from the Moot Hall in the centre of Brampton, Cumbria at 9:30 am on Sunday 31 July 2016. Brampton is situated about an hour's drive from Newcastle just off the A69. Free parking is available at the car park in Union Lane and surrounding streets.
This is not a ride suitable for beginners as the planned route is just over 50 miles and has around 3,000 feet of elevation gain.  The lanes around Brampton and the Eden Valley are quiet, scenic and somewhat hilly but the aim of this ride is to take in a different area at a moderate speed, so good group riding will be the order of the day.  Lunch will be at the Station Café at Langwathby and I am aiming to be back at Brampton by 3pm.
If you fancy coming along - or aren't sure or have any questions - please contact me via the forum, PM or Facebook.  Hope to see you at Brampton on Sunday 31st. Proposed route: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1172639617
