Lemon Tree at Langwith - Saturday GREEN Ride | Brookside Pharmacy | Saturday, 20. July 2019

Sitwell CC Road Captain:
Mick Harrison
Leaving from the corner of Turner Lane & High Street at 9am.
Ride description:
We are off to Nether Langwith and the highly rated Lemon Tree Café. 5* on trip advisor and the restaurant guru states 'This cafe is recommended to British cuisine lovers. The Lemon Tree at Langwith serves mouthwatering coleslaw, sandwiches and bacon'.
A typical lumpy ride for this neck of the woods taking in familiar roads to Spinkhill and then heading upwards to Bolsover via Oxcroft and the Blackbanks climb, as with any ascent of Bolsover this will be the main challenge of the day. It's then mainly downhill to Whaley and the café stop at Nether Langwith. 
The return to base is via Cresswell and then quiet lanes towards Kiveton Park and Dog Kennel Lane taking us to South Anston to cross the A57. It's then back onto quiet roads to Brampton-le Morthen, Thurcroft and the final descent to base.
Total distance is 38 miles / 61 km with total elevation gain 2,588 feet / 774 metres.
