Been round the Coal Road route today; all clear except the Coal Road itself In some places ice hard snow covers the road. Too risky to sent the ride over.
Will revert to Plan B which we had to use about 3 years ago
Normal route to check point at Garsdale Head, straight down Garsdale to Sedbergh – Two left turns to Dentdale – ½ mile before Dent village turn right sp Gawtrop Barbon. Back on route for climb to Barbondale. This adds about 3 miles to the ride but without the big climb takes a similar time
A full, revised route description will be available at the start
