The Cumberland Classic

This was a classic ride indeed, with some of the toughest climbs in the country, including Wrynose Pass and Hardnott Pass, this one is not for the feint hearted.

We started out from Penrith and headed for a fine hostel somewhere in the hills. With members of Mashup & District Cycling Club up from as far south as ‘that London’ and some from Stoke, the scene was set for an epic weekend riding up hill and down dale.

We like to train properly in Mashup & District.
