Weather forecast = scorchio means only 1 thing for weekend plans and it usually involves Bob, a campsite and a trip to the lakes (or the coast if we're that way inclined!). This weekend however it was the lakes and we decided to take the bikes with the purpose of having a tootle out on the hills.
There seemed to be a good track called Back o Skiddaw through an area of the fells that we knew well and had walked one or two times. The track didn't take us up into the high fells but high enough that it was a challenge.
So Saturday morning dawned with the sound of birdsong and with our sandwiches packed and water bottles filled we headed off.
The last part of ride over the 10+ miles home was pretty much on road, initially up the A66 to where the Caldbeck turning was and then through nice country roads through Mungrisdale Village until finally we were back at the campsite. Exhausted, parched, starving, sunburned but thrilled at having an excellent day out.
Roll on the next adventure...................
