The Keswick to Edenhall ride was spectacular and leaves me wanting to come back and savour some of the other routes. There are videos and stills for your viewing enjoyment. If you watch no other be sure that you look at 'Lamb Jumps...' where I almost have lamb chops for lunch.

Cleared and Cool
I'm currently in the Edenhall Country Hotel which is the best so far. Had an ale and meal in the sunroom overlooking the garden. Went for a walk and felt like someone out of a Thomas Hardy story. Awaiting breakfast and my two major climbs today.
Navigation is now a breeze. The official C2C is carefully marked with blue signposts and my GPS is flawless. I've learned to use the map feature whereby I just keep my moving arrow aligned on the mapped route which, to my surprise, automatically scales itself to show the best detail for my speed.
