It was wishfull thinking. i could avoid the hills by getting to the coast road to avoid the lake district.The A 595 out of Carlise was horrendus with heavy traffic.I got off it and took the A 6 to Penrif,where i am now.Weather i mke it to Manchester remains to be seen.
the British roads are an absolute disgrace

Don't know about the roads, you should see some of the pavements!


Hope we don't have to send a search party out for you - why avoid the Lake District?

Campaigners are trying to ban the use of the term ‘Lycra louts’ to describe speeding cyclists – and even stop the likes of Jeremy Clarkson poking fun at them.
Under proposed media guidelines, abuse of cyclists would be treated as a ‘hate crime’ and they would get the same protection as domestic violence victims and refugees.
Newspapers would also be gagged from stating if an injured cyclist was not wearing a helmet or high-vis clothing.
Instead, they would be urged to shame ‘criminal’ motorists for accidents involving bicycles.


 A hate crime? Are these idiots serious?  ;D ;D ;D
