Saturday 6 July. 

Enjoyed our breakfast again, packed and left in quite warm sunshine, need lots of sunscreen. Rolling through lovely little villages again, then up a bridle path through the fields to get off the main road. It got steeper, we had to push the bikes to the top, but oh what a view! The hedges have been replaced by low dry stone walls now, which are lower and Peter can see over them.

Lots more up and down riding and the day was quite warm when we stopped for lunch at the ‘No car cafe’ behind Rushdon Hall. Superb !

Soon chatting to another cyclist there and he suggested a change in route to avoid the traffic. We rode along the tops for a while (just loving it) and then down a long VERY steep little road into the tiny hamlet of Edale to catch the train there. Watched lots of people setting off with packs to go walking up these lovely green hills. Chatted to a man waiting there and he identified buzzards and jackdaws for us. Every day, something new – it is wonderful.

On the train, the conductor sold us tickets to Manchester, where we changed for Kendal. Train travelling is very smooth and comfortable. We were here at the BnB by 6.00pm and later walked along beside the clear shallow river into town. Had a wonderful Italian meal and bottle of red wine at the Infusion restaurant.
