Langdale - Mountain biking

I spent a great morning mountain biking with Steve today. It was fairly 'nippy' first thing with the car telling me it was + 2C, and I could see a dusting of snow on the tops.

We chose a loop that utilised the fantastic stony tracks in the central Lakes. Firstly heading over Skelwith (fantastic views of Wetherlam, Crinkle Crags etc), before dropping into the Furness Fells and Hodge Close Quarry.
Steve didn't want to get wet feet this early on!
Can you see the dusting of snow???

The weather was fantastic as we headed over into Little Langdale, with only one cow encounter and one airobatic display! Amazingly there weren't many bikers out - on this route at least!

who's giving who a wide berth?
Man down!!!! The shame of being caught on camera!!
From Little Langdale over to Great Langdale I've found a new (to me) secret track that turns off the more popular drop into Elterwater and means you can take a fantastic 'old' road to Oak Howe and deeper into Langdale before quick tracks sped us back to the cars. What a brilliant blast in the Lakes today - left me wanting more..........

Great old road heads into Langdale - wouldn't fancy taking my car up here!

Which way? Last view of the Langdales before heading back
