One Cold Winter’s Morning

I guess in a sense this article is a follow up to my last piece; ‘When the fog never clears’. Since that trip, Autumn had slipped away and Winter now had a firm grip on the higher fells.

A daytime ride was planned to celebrate a member of the Hope Tech team’s birthday, bashing around the Glenridding and Ullswater area. With a clear night forecast, some of the Hope Tech family and friends had their minds set on an excursion up Helvellyn to catch the sunrise before descending Sticks Pass. I was kindly invited by Sharpie and happily obliged!

The alarm was set for the usual 4:00 am and we aimed to meet at the bottom for 5:00 am.
