I loved that.:thumbsup: Brilliant to see so many roads I know before they were metalled. I rode the Garburn Pass (which they start and finish with) in 2010 and it still looked looked pretty similar.

What a lovely old film. Non of your poncy pansy arsed Chelsea tractors there.

I've cycled up Kirkstone Pass, twice and down The Struggle, that's a scary downhill on a bike.
