Hopebeck and Lanthwaite Green bike ride

A cycle ride from Cockermouth to Hopebeck, down into the Lorton Valley again, and then up to Lanthwaite Green. And back to Cockermouth.

Fabulous ride. Including a red squirrel which I at first thought was dead on the road, but was in fact drinking from a puddle. He/she wasn’t the least bit bothered by me, and eventually ran off up a tree.

Wow. I spotted some wildlife. This could be a first.
