A Great ride. The climb up from Grisedale Tarn is steep with the bike on the back. On the top there was poor visiblity which was disapointing. As I approached the top there were about 40 hikers in the shelter eating lunch (Helvellyn is very popular). They looked as one at me as I appeared out of the cloud. One said, "What the heck are you doing up here with that?!" Sought consolation as I saw three MTBers on the way down. The downhill is simply amazing. Just when you think its over it gets steeper! A classic ride.
