Started raining the second we set off from whitehaven. Gentle climb for the first 10 miles, then up and down. Rain got heavier. Stopped at a pub 4 lunch. Felt bloody cold when went back out in our wet clothes, first day of summer, global warming my arse! The road out of lorton was a killer, whinlatter pass not too bad thru the forest. Great going down the other side, but had to take it easy with wet brakes. Rain got worse. Now in yha keswick, dry, clean and changed, ready for food and beer. Only 109 miles to go!
