Worth the wait....

What amazing weather, a sunny day in the Lakes, with 6" of fresh snow on the tops. We decided that a ride starting from Staveley and heading deep into Kentmere would be a good idea, and indeed it was!

Loads of bikers were assembling at Wilfs when we arrived (late!) to meet Steve, but strangely we only saw 2 all day. The tracks were great and views even better.

The Kentmere Savanna

Must watch out for big cats stalking us...
And now some downhill....
I'd sold the ride as being a 1.5-2hr blast, but we ended up riding for 3.5 hrs, and we didn't stop much either..... I'd also said it was an easy route..... Erm, actually it was quite rough and a very hilly route, or would you say 'undulating'?! Amazing how your brain only remembers the good points (and not all of the hills!).

We all enjoyed it, and I even managed to slow the group down a few times to get some pictures. A classic Lakes outing, so lucky to live near here.

Sorry Steve if you got in trouble for being late for your walk this afternoon ;-).
