Rideout to Glenridding

I organised a last minute rideout today to Glenridding, no takers unfortunately just me and Helen went in the end. Route was as follows: Trough of Bowland, Bowness, Kirkstone Pass, stopping in Glenridding, then re-fuel in Penrith, then back via A6 Shap, Orton, Viaduct at Beck Foot Tebay, Stop at Devil’s Bridge, then Long Preston, Gisburn home. Total length was 211 miles.

Had a nice day out today, weather held out all day in the end. Didn't stop for lunch in Glenridding after all as it was just to busy. Stopped just outside Penrith on the A6 at a pub called the Beehive. We did get annoyed today though, poor drivers doing a pitiful 25mph over Kirkstone Pass. We were also told to dismount and remove our helmets before being allowed to fuel up at a petrol station in Penrith.
