Day 11 Clitheroe to Swaledale

Posted by: Anthony Hewitt

It takes 3 to Tandem! Was fortunate today that I got a buffer from the north-easterly wind in the form of a couple who joined me on a tandem for this leg.

The climb to the Yorkshire dales was a battle of beauty and the bleak, but the downhill into Swaledale was fantastic as I clocked close to 50mph. I was given such a warm welcome by Swaledale director Malcolm Creese that playing outside at 10 celcius didn't matter. The view from the Green in Reeth is stunning and with two weeks of classical, jazz, folk, literature, and theatre, this is one of the most diverse festivals in the country.
