Whinlatter in the snow
We were in the Lakes for a short family holiday, but the bike came along. On the final morning, my brother-in-law and I got a lift up to Whinlatter for a lap of each of the red routes; bizarrely, we've never ridden together before.
Found the climbs surprisingly easy despite this being only my second ride of the year. Commuting on my 'fast' bike this winter must have helped me make some more higher-intensity efforts. Or something.
We had to take it very easy on a lot of the descents as they were very icy, but they were still enjoyable.
Distance: 21km (map on Strava)
Surface: Off-road (plus a road descent)
Weather: Snow and ice on the ground
Bike: On-One Inbred SS (with 2.4″ tyres, 32:17)
