A fine ride out from Keswick, round Derwent Water, Newlands Valley and Buttermere, then back via Honister Pass (356 m.), with a few side-trips to explore the limits of the road bike.
Wonderful views, typically Cumberland also evocative miniatures of so many other great places. Busy enough riding so I’m not cold, despite yesterday’s spring snow still shining on the tops of the fells. But the bike’s got muddy again. Ah well, that’s what I have the buckets and brushes for I suppose.
