Once again I woke to a very wet Sunday morning. There are always jobs to do, and there better done on wet days. By 2 o'clock it was almost dry, so I got out on the bike for a ride round the lanes between home and Kendal. My route took me to Crooklands, Gatebeck, LowPark, Stainton, Hincaster, across the mosses to Sandside, Arnside, Silverdale, Yealand and back home. Almost all of the route was on single track roads with very little traffic, good job the potholes are bad enough after the frost and rain.
There has been an excellent new footbridge (see photo) built on a very little used path, across St. Sundays Beck near Stainton. Quite a surprise because the local press has been full of the cuts and lack of money, even for the marking of footpaths/bridleways.
