KTM 1190 Adventure in the Northern Pennines

 Yesterday was a rare "almost dry" here in the grim North of England. I rode over to Middleton-in-Teesdale via Kirkby Lonsdale, Sedbergh, Kirkby Stephen and Brough. I was blessed with blue skies nearly all was almost warm! Upper Teesdale led over to Garrigill, then over to Nenthead for lunch. The roads were beautifully quiet...fantastic. From Alston it was over Hartside to Penrith and beside Ullswater and back home over Kirkstone. A great day out. The video below is of the ascent of Hartside from Melmerby (Part of a bonus extra for me to the top of Hartside and back from the West😀)

  1. Thanks Al. That was inspiring. You have to put up with days like this to earn and appreciate the sunny dry days.
