New Year cycling in Cumbria:
New Year cycling started off yesterday with a 36-mile loop around Windermere with Ben Irvine the author of Einstein and the Art of Mindful Cycling.
Starting at Newby Bridge we headed up the west side of the lake to Hawkshead and then on to Ambleside and Grasmere for a well-earned café break.
The weather was wet for the outbound ride and dried up for our return.
All in all a very enjoyable start to the New Year.
