The Bay Dash: This ride is one of three sportive rides on the same day under the banner of Wrynose or Bust. It is organised by the Rotary Club of Lancaster, Lancaster Cycling Club and a few cycling friends.

The Bay Dash is just over 68 miles (109km) and still requires a reasonable fitness level. Starting from the Halton Army Training Camp near Lancaster, the course follows the Wrynose or Bust route to Low Wood near Haverthwaite before climbing Bigland Hill on the way to High Newton. Climb and descend the dangerous Tow Top hairpin back to Witherslack and Town End before diverting through Heversham, coming back to Whassett. On to Burton in Kendal where you turn left through Priest Hutton before climbing Sunnybank, pass the Redwell on your right before turning left to follow the ridge overlooking the Lune valley before bringing you back to the Halton Army camp. 

There is one feed station at High Newton and hot drinks will be available  if the weather is poor. At the end of the ride, complementary food will be provided by The Rotary Club of Lancaster, Inner Wheel and Cancercare. Tea and coffee will also be provided.

This is a charitable fund raising event where the net proceeds of all monies raised are for the benefit of UK and other charities and projects supported by Rotary. This year we are mainly supporting Unique Kidz and Cancercare.
