Autumn in the Lake District
Helm Crag overlooking Grasmere sports ground – Saddleback Fred Whitton Challenge HQ.
After a short rest, all the team are now making preparations for the 17th edition of our ride. Cumbria is now back up and running after the devastating floods that affected most of the region last December.
Grasmere suffered like most places but is now back to its very best, with a large influx of foreign visitors taking advantage of the drop in the value of the pound, and enjoying the outstanding autumn scenery.
In a few weeks, we will be posting details of the ways you can enter the 2017 event. We will do our best to be fair to everyone that is wanting to ride, and various options will be available.
Our aim, as usual, is to make the ride the best one-day cycle ride in the country and something you will never forget.
Paul Loftus MBE President of The Fred Whitton Challenge.
