The Maiden Moor Detour
It was a perfect winters day to get back out on the fells. I didn’t even plan to do anything more than an easy trail run today but looking up from #rosthwaite at the hills above was too much to resist.
Off I skipped and slid, mostly slid as trail shoes and fields don’t go hand in hand, up towards tongue gill and the stairs of rigghead quarries. The views alone were fuel enough to carry me up #highspy and over #maidenmoor . It was only after the last climb of the day up #catbells that my energies dwindled, as I realised that the rumbling I could hear was not a storm coming to rain on my parade but that I forgot to eat breakfast. Luckily I found a @Veloforte Classico bar in the pocket of my bag and took 5 minutes to sit down and enjoy the view, the candied peel and spice flavours merged perfectly into my winters day.
Charged up I was back to the top of my game to ride the familiar decent from cat bells back to Keswick.
The Maiden Moor Detour an adventure I will not soon forget. I hope that it’s fond memory will be my seasons motivation to keep getting out

Mint weekend in the Lakes for our pre Christmas festive family get together. I can confirm there were pigs in blankets present. Here’s team Chuckers atop of Cat Bells, Luka getting a cracking vista of my chest, when he was arsed enough to be awake and that lol #lakedistrict#catbells#steveheartslakes#christmas#carbonmonoxide
