My apologies, because last night I entirely failed to find the photograph which showed the Gateway to Oblivion in all its glory!

So here it is!  Just the place to conveniently 'lose' any unwelcome guests!!

And because I'm too tired to do a real post, I thought I'd include a view of the road to Hardknott.  I'm not sure if this is the infamous Hardknott Pass - it may in fact be Wrynose, but I'd just like to note that certain crazy cyclists actually pass this way on the Sportive From Hell  - the Fred Whitton.  J was meaning to ride it one year, but didn't get around to booking his place (it sells out really quickly) and in the end I think he was quite relieved to escape this licensed masochism.

We saw a couple of cyclists on our visit to Hardknott, and they all did really well.  I don't know if their secret was compact chainsets or triple chain-rings, but...  They looked almost comfortable!  Which made me feel a bit embarrassed, because when I took my old standard Campag 58-42 (I think!) out round the Langdales, I was off and walking at the first bend!

Yeah, I don't think I was ever destined to be a real cyclist.  I'm just too much of a coward...
