4 Lakes and japes
Start/finish Penrith Distance 148 Miles Riding time 4.5 hours Checkpoints 4 (Hartside Top, High Force, Penny Garth Café, Sizergh Castle)
Crossing some of the roads — and checkpoints — that form Michael Heaton’s route (above), Jamie Bush’s afternoon blast takes in some superb roads around the Lake District. He admits to having ridden it lots of times, on his KTM 990 Superduke and his 1290 Superduke, both perfect tools for the job. His loop takes in four checkpoints, for a cuppa or dinner.
