Rough Stuff Fellowship ride over Garburn Pass

The forecast was poor for today so although I knew Ian would be at Wilf's Cafe in Staveley, I was surprised to find that Adam was also there. After a coffee/tea/hot chocolate! with a plan off we rode....

A short way up Kentmere, we headed up Browfoot Lane and onto the first rough stuff of the day.

After passing through High Borrans, a bit of tarmac and the climbing (gradual at first) started as we rode up Dubbs Road.

As we gained height any hope of a view were lost as we were enveloped in cloud. It was slightly drier though!

No photo's of the descent I'm afraid :-(
The drizzle had really set in, we sought shelter beside Kentmere village hall.

From Kentmere Hall it was uphill on the bridleway past Whiteside End into Kentmere Park.

By now it was very wet....and muddy!

After a quick descent to the valley we decided to add another would have been difficult to get any wetter. So up past Long Houses before a final descent past Elf Howe and back to the cars.
Another great ride, the weather only adds to the fun....that's what I keep telling myself.
