Dufton Weekend Cycling

Posted by James Gravenor on 2016-11-13

Dufton was a weekend of two halves. The Saturday was glorious and we managed a 60 mile ride from Dufton to Talkin Tarn and back. The outward journey was into a cold headwind but we were blown back to the hostel.

The autumn colours were wonderful and the roads very quiet.

Castle Carrock near Talkin Tarn is the home of a music festival and it's village sign entreats one to "Please Dance" - so we did. See our Facebook page for the video.

We enjoyed an excellent meal on the Saturday night at the hostel. Thank you to all those who contributed food.

We woke up on Sunday to snow on the ground which then turned to slush and ice. Not the weather for cycling so we did the sensible thing and packed up and went home.
