    Hartside pass heading to the Lake District

    Great ride out today. Hartside over to Keswick for lunch at the Filling Station. Then on the Devil's Bridge for an ice cream via Windermere and back up home towards Durham.



    I've got some more footage but haven't sifted through it all yet. Too tired after that trip

    Cheers lads. Aldo, agreed with you on the YouTube comment mate, it is more fun in the other direction. As you can see, I'm not the best at down hill sharp bends and have much more confidence in the front end going up hill
    Thanks from Aldo

    Nice vid Mik, looks like you were enjoying the ride.
    I love that road, the turkey baps in Hartside cafe are lush too, could be why your mate pulled in.
    Catch up soon.

    I like the home cooked curry. He needed a piss and caught us up before Keswick.

    Aye, was a good run out. My try and get out again this Sunday if the weather is decent.

    Managed to get out today for the first time since this ride... and ended up back at Hartside

    Other way this time and kept on going at Alston instead of turning off and taking the Stanhope road. First time I've been up that way and followed a great road right up to the A69. Will be doing that one again

    Me too but it isn't in great shape at the moment. They appear to be resurfacing though, so should be excellent when done.

    I've got an sj4000, really good piece of kit for the money. The colour could be a bit richer but I'm not Spielberg so no biggie

    Aye that was me, the good looking fella on the yellow V4

    My camera is the Contour Roam 2 - 140ish. Sounds like a bargain the sj4000. I didn't want a gopro as too bulky. I can secretly film the missus with the contour
