Bounders in Lakeland June 2013


Bob & I went up to the Lakes to explore the first stretch of the forthcoming Coast to Coast epic, staying at the excellent Lutwidge Arms in Holmrook.  The die was cast at 6.00 am Friday morning when Bob stuck his head out of the window and announced “it’s a glorious day, the hills are beckoning”.

And beckon they certainly did, for the rest of the day.  After a pleasant introduction to Eskdale, the vertical wall of Hardknott Pass was a shock, but the descent on the other side was even harder, hang onto those brakes and beware the surface is broken up in places. 

Wrynose Pass was a treat by comparison, and after that the hills were more fun, but continuous.  What made me think the road beside Coniston would be flat?  After a splendid feed at Lowick Bridge (only one feed stop! I was desperate) we explored a number of other rarely visited parts of the Lakes including Subberthwaite Common, Dunnerdale Fells, Duddon Valley and Ulpha Fell, before dropping back into Eskdale Green and thence back to the pub after a modest 60miles, 6000ft, to wage a vigorous battle against dehydration.
