Walked the dogs this morning plus a little DIY to keep the wife smiling then had the afternoon to myself , my C4 is a weekender so its all pleasure but even after 100 miles spent in the Yorkshire Dales this afternoon i could have just carried on , loved every bend , every straight & every gear change , a tip was a consideration for a short spell but so so glad i went 6 speed , the gearbox & gear change on this car is sublime .
Anyhow for those who know the area i went via Ingleton / Ribblehead viaduct up to Dent station (highest working station in England ) then headed home via Horton in Ribblesdale / Settle / Gisburn .
A great way to spend the afternoon & the car itself just amazes me how well they feel / drive for its 13yrs & 88k
In & out of the bends you just can't worry it , fantastic machine worship

Cracking pictures lad! (to be read in a Wallace & Grommit accent).
Joking aside, down here on the South Coast you would quickly join the back of a convoy of cars, all trundling along at 40 mph. And all bunched up so you can't overtake. Or you might fancy a drive in the New Forest, which is lovely, but every single road is 40 mph limit. That's if you can bear the agony of miles of roadworks on the M27 to actually get there.

Enough negativity! Well done on a great car, great roads and great pictures. I am envious!

Great to see, I’ve got out of the habit of early morning summer runs on clear roads, the cooler air making the engine even more sprightly Thumb

Like your instagram page btw Thumb

I need to get my C2 up to Lancs by the looks of those roads. The surfaces are absolute balls down here in Kent.

The local council’s idea of sorting a road surface is chucking ten ton of those asphalt clippings all over the shop and letting passing traffic squash all down. For the first few days it’s a skid fest with loose chippings flying around your coach work frustrated

Amen to that...as someone who hails from Lancashire, spent his formative years blasting around the Lancs/Yorks moors, and now lives in the 40 mph (if you're lucky at this time of year) New Forest...
