Cycling Canterbury-Dover-Land's End-John O'Groats-Canterbury in aid of the British Heart Foundation
Cycling day 22: Bilsborrow to Sedbergh
Posted On 2009-Jul-10
My journey today took me through the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and into the very edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. I started out in Lancashire and now I’m in Cumbria.
I tried to take a few photos this morning but they were extremely blurry. It turns out that a little water had managed to work itself into my camera, presumably in the downpour at the the end of yesterday. This manifested itself as some condensation within the lens and the screen. Luckily it dried out within about and hour and a half.
In terms of cycle routes today I followed a bit more of the Lancashire Cycleway (Regional Cycle Route 90), several miles of National Cycle Route 6, and a little of the Cumbria Cycleway (Regional Cycle Route 30). I wasn’t expecting the latter of those, so that’s a bonus.
Sedbergh, it turns out, is England’s Book Town. It’s a small town, but has eight book shops and a book centre.
