|Somewhere there is a route and Story in a back Edition of
Coments from an attempt at this route.
| I did this
route in 2000, we did it in 3 days, which was fookin' tough! Distances each day
were roughly (from memory) 45, 72 and 50. Something like that.
Day 1 took us to Ambleside, and involved alot of pushing/dragging over Black Sail etc.
Day 2 was the most epic day ever on an mtb, getting over the length of High Street is always a laugh but knowing what is to come later (Cross Fell) should be very sobering.
Day 3 to Sunderland was pleasent (but painful by then). If you're going to do this route take an extra day (or 2) and do a short distance on the second day so that you don't have to attempt Cross fell on the same day as High Street.
Other than that, we had a great time, we don't believe their version of events in MBR one little bit.
