I have had a good look at the OS maps, and have imposed a distance limit (from home as the crow flies) of 5km. this still gives me lots of options, very little if any I haven't been ridden before. But some of these lanes and bridleways only an odd time or two. I intend to try and traverse all of them as a project on my daily exercise during the lockdown.
It was overcast and cool today....we are promised sun and a much warmer day tomorrow. Anyway lets not get ahead of ourselves....here's a few images from today's ride.
|I used my Titanium Elan with its optional lighter wheels and wider mixed terrain tyres. Ideal for the rough potholed, gravel strewn lanes today.|
This is Nook Bridge.
|A wider view of Nook Bridge and Farleton Beck.|
|Road Closed the sign said...and indeed it would have been for anything other than a bike.|
This is just along the lane from Nook to Whetstone, the old limestone culvert (beautifully constructed) overwhelmed in the floods earlier this year.
|I turned off before Whetstone to descend via Black Yeats to Crooklands.|
I took the opportunity to take this photo of the Lakeland hills before I dropped down though.
