Last week-end myself and Glen went to the Lake district, about 10miles north
west of Penrith for a chilled one. We took our bikes out there to help us get to
places. On the Saturday, Mark (details to follow) picked us up and took us for a mountain
bike tour around the hills.
Well, we thought it was going to be a walk in the park and a little
ride over simple muddy tracks. No no.. We got kitted with a downhill bike each and
went for our first rocky downhill experience. Although I fell off 3 times and feel
quite lucky not to have damaged myself more, we got to see some superb country side
as well as experience some a great riding experience through quite technical paths.
The ride was called Borrowdale bash, a 15mile ride starting in Kewick including
Ashness bridge, the honister, and going along castle crag. Any further detail, get in
touch with them direct: http://www.lakedistrictmountainbiking.co.uk
Really enjoyed it and definitely one to do again. A couple of pics below and a video
due to arrive shortly. MEGA
Cadel Evans on a city brake? Oh no, It's GLEN!
Can't argue with the beauty of this, The English Isle does not stop to amaze me
