Hartside

So here we are once more; it’s the weekend of the last night of the proms, the fat lady has sung and summer is over. What’s more, the Tour of Britain finished on Hartside Fell on Thursday and I missed it because I am not available to watch bike races on Thursdays. It seemed like a good idea therefore to ride back up there today, to feel a bit less left out of the great sweep of cycling history than I felt Friday morning, to revisit somewhere I haven’t been to for ages, to take advantage of one of the diminishing number of opportunities to ride the North Pennines fells without the pressure of short days and not very cycling conducive weather on the tops around there to come, and to make amends for all the cake during the week.
