C2C Day 2 : Keswick to Langwathby via the Old Coach Road

We set off on day 2 in high spirits but knowing that we had a tough day ahead of us. We had decided to do as many off road routes as possible and so took the steep rocky Old Coach Road out of Threlkeld Common. It was hard work in the heat but we also made the mistake of thinking we had made it to the top too early - only to find the trail snaking up the hillside around the corner.

Still, we pushed on to the top and after a rocky descent on the coach road we cycled along hilly country lanes to Greystoke (of Tarzan fame) and then against a headwind to Penrith. After another tough climb we arrived at the pub in Langwathby to meet Wez & Sarah for a well earned pint of Dorithy's 90th Birthday Ale. Hurrah !
