Andy's got tingles - it feels like it's gonna be a good one!

Bring it on!
Special wood; ready!
Andy gets the fire going

Slipping into something more comfortable by the cosy fire
Setting up. Camp.
Andy's tucked away. Time to make supper.
Ninja G and the sacrificial obelisk
Morning lads. Cold innit?! What's that white stuff outside?
08:34, -5 degrees and 2 inches of snow. Brrrrr. Think I'll stop in me bag ta.
Next morning - "We're alive!!"
Hmm, not sure if that's going anywhere soon
Andy always sleeps well, the bastard
Frozen water (quelle surprise...)
We going riding bikes then lads?
Enjoying the sunrise first
Enjoying the show, despite the temperature

Camp Farelton - the aftermath
It's gonna be a good day :)

Striking camp - love how you can see where our three bivvies were :)
Spot the snow ninja
Morning sunlight on Whernside hills
Looking forwards to the downhill
Let's have it lads
Top of Farleton Fell
No messing - straight down
As steep as it looks!
Conclusion - the back of Farelton Fell isn't really rideable - least not in the snow!
Farleton Fell - DONE
Andy makes it clear how good the bivvy was
That'll be the title slide sorted then
Refuel at Wilf's Cafe
Feeling as knackered as we look
Heading out of Stavely
What a day!
Andy taking in the ambience
Should've slept in there!
G climbing out of Staveley
Rick struggling for traction and keeping the front wheel down

Who needs a sledge?
All down hill from here baby!
Yup - it's been pretty cold
