On Boxing day we deceided to burn off some turkey by going mountain biking. Just a quick route round Cotterdale and Hardraw. What should have taken about an hour took just over 2. The snow was ok to begin with but one we started to descend down into Hardraw, the track had filled in with snow upto 9 inches deep in places. This was also not helped by large expanses of sheet ice. Still a great ride, (apart from what feel like cracked ribs!! and ended with some Honey Brandy!!
