Pete and I set out in the little car with Keela for a 2 hour drive to Ambleside. 

Ambleside is in the south Lakes, Pete and Alice both completed there outdoor education course  here and its where they meet. 

Pete ended up working for Kankku off road driving adventures and it was here that we were heading.     Www.kankku.co.uk

 

The business owners Nick and Kate have about 20 4x4s that they hire our for both guided and self drive use.

After our run in the 110 we headed of home and grabbed our bikes.

Pete also worked at a local bike shop, so we hooked up with Andy from Bike treks and went out for a late evening ride.

It was at this point the Weather turned and it pissed down so no more photos from this day.

These were taken at about 8.00pm.

We ended the ride with lights about 10.00m soaked thru. To wet even to go to the Pub.

Right enough for now, as it's 11.15pm, more tomorrow. 

Cheers Pete
