Again, we woke up with rain ticking on our tent. Luckily everything, but our shoes, stayed dry during the night.

We swing our sore legs over our saddles once again. The cold wind makes us shiver. We decide to have breakfast in the city center of Carlisle before tackling the tracks surrounding Hadrian’s Wall. With fresh fuel in our tanks we start riding towards Newcastle, our final destination of our bikepacking adventure.

Riding home from Harrogate – part 3

20 Nov 2019 // Published in Bikepacking

With just a small electric heater in the Pod, we woke up from cold feet, cold fingers and cold bones. Last night we stayed on top of a hill looking out over Windermere lake in Lake District. Way colder than our previous stay, but just as beautiful.
