Our AWESOME trip to the Lakes District Aug 2003

Well, it had been a long long time since I had been away on a biking weekend - about 3 years, and when martin mentioned going to Spain or the North of England - I was dead keen. eventually we decided to head to the lakes District, and Invited mike and Al& Michelle along too. We knew the roads were supposed to be perfect up there and the scenery even better - but we were surprised how beautiful it was. The roads were amazing, twisty and smooth, with some fast bits and really tight walking speed hairpins!! Lots of other bikers up there as well.
We stayed in a really nice BnB in Windermere - one of the biggest towns up there, and did a big loop taking us north to the Scottish Border, west to the coast and back to Windermere. Each night we flopped into bed, asleep in seconds (Helped by a few pints of course!)
As usual, please enter any comments about this page in the guestbook.
