I promised that next time I go out on the bike I'd take my camera, and I've stuck to my word! I was revising all day yesterday and had my final exam this morning and so was itching to get out into the sunshine. My house mate Adrian suggested a bike ride and so I suggested the same route as I did a few weeks back, over Littledale and down to Caton, but this time armed with a camera! I also bought a pair of new wheels (Fulcrum Racing 7s) last week and haven't had the chance to test them out yet.

After Saturday's run my legs were still feeling a bit on the achey side, and the big hill up from Lancaster to the Littledale area was hard going. We took a few breaks and that meant I could get a couple of photos. We had quite a big break by Littledale Crags to take in the great views and fantastic weather.

From there it was a quick descent to Caton and back along the cycle track to Lancaster. As we were both still feeling fine we decided to carry on to Glasson, following the Lune cycle path all the way, before coming back the same way. The weather was fantastic - warm and sunny with the slightest of breezes to keep us at a nice temperature. Cycling along the Lune felt very easy and it felt great to be out on the bike. I'm tempted to go for another long ride this week to try and build up my cycling legs!
