Very nice ride. The drop from Alston to Melmersby has been rated one of the top 5 scenic roads in Britain. Alternative to the kirkstone pass Windermere to Ulswater is to head north to Thirlmere and then take the A66 East to rejoin this route.
The Beautiful English Lake District.
200km loop round the English Lake District. Good roads and great scenary taking in Kendal, Penrith and Carlisle
