Trek Bikes – GOING IN – Kendal Mountain Festival 2019

Lets head back a few months, when we could escape our houses, but the weather meant many of us, maybe the majority, would rather spend their days in doors, curled up near a wood burner, horlicks or something stronger in hand, while rain and wind changed physical form on the glass panes surrounding us.
