“Richard and I had been all around the Lake District, to the northern, southern, eastern and western extremities, cycling past all of the lakes in the process. We had crossed all of the mountain passes except two: Hardknott and Wrynose. Today we would be back in the middle of the Lake District. The hard bit in the middle.”
