Thankfully it wasn’t at the Summit
Looks like about 69 min to Carlisle judging by RTT. Nice and steady up Shap and a decent overall time.
Looked about mid 30s on approach to the summit.
Three shots from the towpath of the Lancaster canal (northern reaches) near Holme, just south of Milnthorpe.
oops, been trying to find a simple video cut and join, there seems to be only complicated editors about and all the simpe ones have had a virus attached, so, much later than necessary, 35018 accelerates away on the Carnforth levels:-
Plenty in the tank today and a great sound from the Merchant Navy, especially on the going away shot towards the summit, which should lead nicely into Steve's video.
