So 2022 is the year I turn 50 and I thought we should plan a special SE Fitness outing to celebrate.
Some of you will know that I’m named after Helvellyn (pictured), it’s a mountain in the Lakes so an SE Fitness expedition to climb to the top seemed the perfect way to celebrate the big birthday.
Still some way off as I’m thinking summer 2022 but I just wanted to put it out there and see if anyone would be interested?
It’s probably too far for a coach there and back in a day so I planned to make a weekend of it. You’d be free to make your own travel arrangements although I’d share my own plans and would setup mountain guides again as it worked well when we climbed Snowdon. All that would be left to decide is whether we tackle the summit via Striding Edge, (picture right) which can be a bit hair raising, or take a less spectacular route to the top?!
BBC4 are doing a programme “A Year on Helvellyn” if you wanted to learn more about ‘my’ mountain.
What do you think, would you be interested in coming along?
