Day 12 Swaledale to Keswick via Bowness

Posted by: Anthony Hewitt

My favourite day so far as finally a tail-wind and some sunny weather! I have had so many days of headwinds that I take it as a matter of course that's its blowing from wherever I am going!

My official halfway point reached today at Lake Windermere and also I was brought up here so a lovely homecoming seeing lots of friends for the concert by the lake which was every bit as beautiful as I had hoped.

Toby from Wheelbase (my bike sponsor) joined me today and happily the route took us straight past the shop so we stopped for more supplies, as well as the best brownies in Britain from the artisan cafe next door!

Up to Keswick for the evening concert cycling on the shores of Lakes Windermere and Thirlmere with views to Langdale and Helvellyn, and arriving at the venue which has possibly the most stunning backdrop of any music club in the country!
