|The island of Crow Holme as the ferry reached the west side of Windermere
|Heading up the side of the lake, the islands of "Lilies of the Valley" covered in Autumnal trees
|Top of the first climb under Claife Heights....time for a breather
|Having ridden past Blelham Tarn, and through Hawkshead. We climbed the bridleway past Walker Ground, and had a buttie stop just before we entered Grizedale Forest.
|Leaving the forest, the new multi-use trail down to Monk Coniston gave us a great descent.
|Gratuitous photo of my 29er in front of a log pile!
|A bit of tarmac through Low Tilbirthwaite and Holme Ground and the beautiful colours of Hodge Close were revealed.
|Another multiuse trail led us back to Wray Castle.
|Followed by a return along the edge of Windermere, then back across the ferry to the cars in Bowness.
A great ride, good to be out with Tim and Ian on the bikes in such great weather :-))
A strava track can be found here for anyone who may want to see just exctly were we went!
