|Walking down towards Hardraw via Appersett, the Wensleydale folk had made a huge bicycle on the hillside.
|We made our way up the Buttertubs Pass through the crowds which were growing all the time. We found a good place and settled down to wait!
|About an hour before the race the publicity caravan came through...Big Fruit Shoots eh!
|The arrival of the race was heralded by lots of helicopters...
|Then the race came through...the veteran Jens Voigt in the lead. I'd made a decision not to watch the race through a camera lens...so this was the only pic I took of the race.
|After the race we walked up to the high point of the pass. Then across the moor to Little Shunner Fell.
|Its easy going from there to the summit of Great Shunner Fell. A great viewpoint today.
|From the summit we followed the Pennine Way South back down into Wensleydale and then bypaths and road to the car. It had been a superb day, one I won't forget for a long time.
