Mountain Biking Lake District – Part II

So after a windy Saturday that saw Iain and I riding low around Iron Keld, the night brought torrential rain, scuppering our plans for a Sunday trip up High Street.  So we decided on a variant of our Iron Keld ride, this time heading up Claife Heights, which was surprisingly good riding, and then along Windermere on easy tracks before crossing over ourselves and heading back to Iron Keld for the amazing descent.  This time it was more like a river, but still very rideable.  We then headed down the road to Chesters for coffee and cake, followed by a climb up the road to descend Loughrigg Terrace (again).

Back at the Youth Hostel, shower, dinner, and then our weekend of mountain biking was over…

Only the small matter of Ride London-Surrey 100 on 2 August lies between me and the ‘Ard Rock Enduro, so good job to get some time in on the mountain bike.
