Tour of Rheged

Description

204km cycling event starting from Kendal. Controls at Middleton-In-Teesdale, Alston, Pooley Bridge and Kendal Cricket Club., plus 1 information control.

NOTE: new start at Kendal Cricket Club. Little known roads, some more familiar, choppy lanes, fast flats and long climbs. Woods, fields, moors, lakes and fells. A bit of everything...

This ride is an anticlockwise tour of the ancient kingdom of Rheged; the Old North, the land of the fell-ponies. After the Romans went (what did they ever do for us?) the local Cumbric-speaking Britons set up their own kingdom. It didn't last long, being overun by pagan Anglo-Saxons from Northumbria and by Scandanavians from the sea. Between them the invaders left the majority of place names in the area, although Tees, Penrith and other place names from the days of Rheged can still be found on this physically and toponymically challenging ride.
