Birthday Rides 2015

The 2015 CTC Birthday Rides were held at Newton Rigg Agricultural College just outside Penrith in Cumbria. The rides are held in a different region each year and are run by CTC Holidays with help from the local member group volunteers. This year around 250 members attended to celebrate the 137th birthday of the National CTC.
Seven Burnley and Pendle members attended the event, some staying in the  en-suite accommodation with breakfast and evening meals provided, others making use of the caravanning facilities. There were a variety of rides each day ranging from less than 20 miles to 70 miles plus.  The area around Penrith is a superb cycling area with access to the Lake District and the much under- appreciated Eden Valley.  Our members generally tackled the shorter rides but nevertheless had superb rides around the quieter villages in the Eden Valley, the Ullswater area, and around the Mungrisdale area.

Entertainments were laid on each evening including a ceildh (video evidence available!) the Solway Saxophone Quartet (the joint was jumping!) and Murray the Magician (consensus -somebody was outside to let him out of the tank.)
