Lakes again...

And 2 more on board the ferry. Weather was great, even changed to unlined summer gloves and then rode through the Lyth Valley back to Levens Hall and on to Arnside (recommended!) for a spot of lunch before going home. A perfect spring day!!!

love

it over there. Going in May for a couple of nights, by car though. Looks like you had a damn sight better weather than we had Steve. Bloody freezing over in northumberland, and thick fog.

Do they provide tie-down straps

on the ferry, or is the ride smooth enough that bikes usually do not fall over?

Its smooth enough!

the ferry pulls itself across on two cables so being a lake, its always smooth although yesterday there was quite a wind and the ferry was crabbing a bit as it went across. I thought one cable had snapped! Its probably wise to sit on your bike with the brake on though when it bumps up the landing ramp as your bike might roll off a side stand.
