    SFB, in terms of hardness’ how does this loop compare to say the Edale/Hope circuit?

    about 50% harder due to Gatescarth and Nan Bield pushes IMO…

    Lowey, I'm waiting for some other riders to ride it with first (one on holiday, t'other business). It would be stupid to ride it alone.

    what route/mileage/pace are you riding tomorrow??

    Route – Staveley, Green Quarter Fell, Sadgill, Gatescarth, Nan Bield, Kentmere, Kentmere Hall, Ulthwaite Bridge – lowey recknons that to be 19 miles. Ending might change if we have any legs left – but I think I left mine in Dalby today πŸ˜•

    Pace – sociable

    See you there. I'll have a red carnation in my lapel.

    The pace will be relaxed as the guys say above, and I should imagine distinctly sedate from Hawswater to Nan Bield πŸ˜†

    should read: It would be stupid to ride it.
