Just before Lockdown, my friend and I decided that a long drive to Scotland to the Cairngorms to go winter climbing on melted snow might be a bad move. So we packed up our bikes and headed to Dent on the train. We then cycled 110km back to Bingley checking out the cafes and pubs on route over 2 days of cycling. I’ve made you a short video, it won’t make it onto the Banff Film Tour I’m sure, but it might interest you. Stay safe and healthy! Tim B
If you are thinking of going to a hostel in the Lakes this winter then I’ve put together this list of open hostels and their prices for Friday and Saturday nights.
Kate and I have been plotting our winter weekend trips and to help find the deals, I went through the YHA site. The prices will only go up, although March may still come down. So if you’re looking for a cheap romantic weekend away with your climbing partner and don’t have access to other climbing huts then have a look at this first as a guide.
