People need to realise, not everyone out for a walk or cycle in the countryside likes your precious pooch! Keep the bloody things under control! I feel now having had time to think about the attack, and the lack of empathy from the owner that I wish I'd reported the incident to the police. In my book a dog which bites...in this case certainly without provocation should be destroyed...and its owner disciplined as well.
Anyway on with the ride.....
|Our first track was the "Coach Road" over the shoulder of Warton Crag.
John had a mechanical....his front shifter coming undone. He was reminded that perhaps he shouldn't have sold his singlespeed! :-)
|A bit blurry, I'm afraid...to fast these guys! As we climbed up below Heald Brow. Then it was along Bottoms lane as we skirted Silverdale.
|The relatively new permissive bridleways near Haweswater were ridden, followed by a stretch of tarmac to Arnside.
|It was a bit breezy on the prom at Arnside.
|We had a snack to fortify us for the climb over Arnside Knott.
|John and Ian on the track over Arnside Knott...So mission accomplished!
|I took this picture on the way home, there's still a lot of flooding here on the mosses.
