Fred Whitton Challenge - 10th May!

We are all very much looking forward to welcoming the UK's cycling enthusiasts to Grasmere for the 'Fred Whitton Challenge' on 10th May!

The Fred Whitton Challenge is a gruelling 112 mile sportive challenge ride for charity around the Lake District, run in memory of Fred Whitton. Thankfully, for us, it starts and finishes in Grasmere, with the route including the climbs of Kirkstone, Honister, Newlands, Whinlatter, Hardknott and Wrynose passes.

The event has now been running for 16 years, with all profits going to charity, with this year's main charity being Macmillan Cancer Support. They also support the Air Ambulance, Mountain Rescue and youth cycling in all its forms.

We will be open to serve a full range of wholesome and nutritious dishes, so whether you're cycling or watching, we're with you all the way!
