    Rossa, head passed the two Castlerigg campsites on the minor road and continue on this (very narrow road) passed the farm and the road ends. There are woods around this quiet area I am sure you could hammock.

    Thanks @muzz. I ended up staying just outside Ambleside at Low Wray. You can also hire their hammocks if anyone fancy trying it!

    Neighbour did it on his ‘cross bike. (I was on nights last night) said it was ok but the wind was a bit blowy. 😀

    Really enjoyed this.

    Tough, honest slog.

    Just got back I basically followed the GPS download and rode all the bits they diverted people away from they were pretty sodden, except Latrigg which was fine and a blast. Out of Cockermouth I headed up Whinlatter Pass for a baked potato as I was running on empty. Did a loop of the lake to stretch my legs did not do the planned 100 miles 🙁

    The journey back on the M6 killed any enjoyment I got from the ride! Offroad sections were fun but too much on roads for my liking really.

    On the bits they rerouted it was very heavy going and the trails would have been trashed can see why they changed them as they will obviously want to run it next year and it does not go down well with the locals if the trails are trashed. Not sure why they never took the route up Latrigg as it was dry as!
