It wasn't raining which as far as I was concerned was a great start to the day! I took a walk before breakfast to enjoy the local sights,

and escape the attack lambs.

After breakfast and a short wander into Keswick we geared up,

and headed off to nowhere in particular, just a nice ride around down to Thirlmere,

which technically isn't a lake but a reservoir, on down to Ambleside and up over The Struggle to Kirkstone Pass.

After a brief personal refuelling stop at the Kirkstone Pass Inn we headed down towards Ullswater,

then off around the back roads of Penrith and Unthank,

before making our way back to a pleasantly sunny Keswick.

On our return, Nigel felt the sudden need to clean his bike, which I thought was odd,

clean my bike which I thought wasn't odd at all,

and take tea in the garden, best idea of the day!
