Parking in Penrith or Carlisle

A couple of friends and I are doing a lake district loop tour at the end of next month. We are travelling up by car and need somewhere safe to leave it for 4/5 days. Can anyone recommend somewhere safe or secure to leave the vehicle?

Thanks in advance.

Re: To sell or not to sell

I might be interested in your Roberts if you decide to sell. Although I do think you should keep them both. :)

Re: Starting LEJOG in 15days starting training yesterday..

Dont listen to your friends you can do it. :) Seriously, you have left things a bit late, ahermm. However I suppose it depends on how fit you really are...... of course there is no substitute for time on the bike. I would suggest that you dont go flat out mad in the run up as you will be knackered b...

Re: Thinking of doing LEJOG

As a relatively inexperienced solo tourer I'm considering the CTC 17 day tour next year. Has anyone any experience of this, good or bad?

Bamburgh Camp site needed

I'm off to do a circular route around Northumberland next week over 4 days and could do with a campsite near Bamburgh. Preferably one within striking distance of a pub!

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance. :)

It's not really a matter of opinion, pete, they are factually two very different bikes. Cyclo cross matches modern commuting...

Dawes Super Galaxy v Tricross Sport

Right, I've narrowed my search down to 2 bikes - do I go Dawes or Specialzed? I want a 'do it all' bike for mostly day rides up to 60 miles, the odd track and bridleway and occasional short camping trips (and a LeJoG in 2012) - I'm something of a traditionalist (I like steel and have a beard), but d...
