Kirkstone Pass

Post by Pie man » Tue Jun 09, 2020 6:24 pm

I decided to make a pack lunch, fully fuel the bike and head off for some training. Throttle training that is. I hit the M6 for approx 100 mile to Penrith and then made my way back home without the use of the Mway. Round trip of 220 miles, no need to stop for fuel, only the sandwiches I made. Rode down past Ullswater, took in the Kirkstone Pass, Long Preston and the Trough of Bowland. Great socially long distance day.

Bet you're glad you did now though?

The thing is......taking pics, and doing vids as well, does take time! But it's worth it.

You've got something to look back on........and enables others to see different places.

In fact the Ride Reports on AdvRider 15 years ago was one of the catalysts for us coming to Spain.

Brilliant pictures and nice ride....Rode through the Kirkstone pass last year, weather wasn't as nice, rain and fog! Lovely part of the world though :thumb:
