From Waverton we headed for Duddon, where we crossed the A51 at not the greatest of spots, but did give us two new lanes, before we headed out to Willington. We had a bit of a climb near Willington Hall, before turning right to climb up past the Sandstone Trail. This was when I realised I had misplaced the cafe, and clearly pinpointed on the map where I thought it was, only to discover it was not there.

It was all downhill coming back! We dropped down Boothsdale, which is stunning, and then down to Oscroft, skirting Tarvin on another new lane (packing them in today) which brought us to the Gowy Bridges again - it is just so pretty there I can't help myself!
15 riders, 20 mils (I think!)
