Crumble, tart, cakes and jams. We’ re going picking by the grams!
Sunday 15th September 2019
A fun day out for fruit picking and lunch. Following an indulging afternoon at the fruit farm we have decided to put on a ride suitable for MTB and Road riders. The route is roads (quiet lanes) and cycle paths. We’ll be heading off at 9am at The Martello tower and will be out until 4/5pm. There is a lunch stop after fruit picking at the lakeside café just down the road from the farm. The farm is a traditional pic your own farm and they don’t weigh you before picking! This is a fun day out and we will go at a pace everyone is comfortable with. The route is 35 miles (with a lunch stop), mainly flat with a couple of small hills but suitable for beginners. This is also a really good way for MTBers to build up road confidence with the support from experienced road ride leaders. Make sure you bring a backpack suitable for carrying the fruit home. Rear lights are required for the road and of course helmets are required on all CSH rides. Youngsters are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult and over the age of 11 years.
The ride will be lead by Kirstie Forcey and Mark Smoker and can be contacted HERE
