I left my friends in Borrowdale as they planned an ascent of the Great Gable group but with a hundred mile ride in front of my I'm really not quite up to tackling a hard days fellwalking before the off, that's old age for you. As it turned out the early morning promise of a fine day did not survive lunchtime and I battled my way against rain and wind on the tough pedal over the summit of Hartside. The clag stayed put till I dropped down off the high ground, here I'm talking a break close to where I camped on the way over to Lakeland. From here its wonderful exhilarating cycling for about ten miles to Middleton-in-Teesdale. I'll be stopping off at the Langdon Beck Hotel before searching for an overnight camp in the Cow Green Reservoir area, time to get rolling.
