Gloucester to Ravenglass

Post by S-Westerly » Sat Jul 11, 2020 6:59 pm

Gloucester to Ravenglass mostly on motorway. Then Hardknott Pass, Wrynose and on to Ambleside. Then Kirkstone pass and Penrith via Ullswater. On to Alston via the Hartside pass and across the Moors to Barnard Castle. Loads of bikes out as well as Muppets in lycra and clueless car drivers parking in passing places FFS.

Well today I had a gentle run up to Morpeth and back to see my aged parents. Again loads of bikes out as well as the lycra mob. Then sadly it'll be time to tuck the bike up for a few months while I sail the seven seas.

Sadly not quite. More like scruff central. Views can be nice though:

Many years ago I was on OSG vlcc’s 300 000 tons, I almost forgot that view.
Since I swop to cruise industry, my view changed,
I do miss, sometimes that long way to the bow view
