    A couple of hours this afternoon completing the Wainwright Northern fells. Great Cockup, Meal Fell and Great Calva from Overwater. 17.5km/900m.
    Could have done without the hail storm. 😬

    Nice one Pete...! The Northern Fells certainly don't give up easily, i recall a torrid day last winter from Mungrisdale-Keswick getting them completed!

At school, like many, I could do 440 yards in 60 seconds or so, but I hated it.
    I think the best potential descent for that kind of speed that i've seen, would be the long final descent at Up The Nab. Long, perfect gradient, non-technical.

    You may be aware that the fastest mile run ever recorded was at the Meltham Maniac Mile, with 400 feet of descent (so mean gradient about 1 in 13), although this is on road: https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/...e-1251620.html
