    Enjoyed that! Looks like the sort of ride I could persuade my OH to come on. Any chance of a route map? We always try to gather up any crap we come across if we can manage it.

    All of Duddon… Broughton Mills, Esdale and Woodland are great… less tourists than the rest of the Lakes, relatively low car numbers, friendly… 🙂

    please feel free to come and pick up rubbish – or just enjoy yourselves any time… I’m lucky enough to be a resident!

    looked to be up Walna scar from Duddon to the stone wall, south through the quarries the down ‘netty bridge’ descent over the watershed. Options then for traverse round to long mire and down to the pub or stephens ground and back to Duddon.  The other descent was Wallbarrow, so up the road to the pub, then into hard knot forest over the small humpback bridge, at Birks and up….

    it’s all good, MTB, Gravel or road…

    welcome & enjoy….

    Fulfilled a lifelong ambition to ride in the Lake district this year.  Based in Troutbeck, it was every bit as good as I’d hoped it would be 🙂  Need to get back soon.
