Day 7 - Four go cycling in the forest
A return of the lovely weather meant that we could do something properly outdoorsy on our last full day at the yurt. We decided to go the the wonderful, nearby Grizedale Forest. Absolutely brilliant place for mountain biking at any level.
Amazingly, we were all back in teeshirts after wrapping up and shivering only the day before.
Checking our route
We had lots of fun mooching around the forest. The girls again did really well on their bikes and managed some pretty demanding climbs too and whooped their way down some fun downhills. That's the best thing about big hills; they may be a pain to cycle up but once you are at the top it's so much fun coming down again.
We met up with my parents that evening who were staying at their caravan not too far away. We went to the Outgate Inn for a delicious meal and a few rather quaffable real ales.
