Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was awoken by Cumbria Constabulary requesting the Team to make contact with a mountain biker who had camped overnight close to Boredale Hause.

Once contact had been made it became apparent that the 41 year old male from Birmingham had chosen to camp at this location after suffering severe cramps the night before and now he was concerned about the driving rain and strong winds that were buffeting him.

After some reassurance from one of the Team deputy leaders the man agreed to walk him and his bike off the fell and that the Team would be watching him via modern telephone technology from the base in Patterdale.

He was met off the fell by the Deputy Team Leader and taken to his pre booked b&b.
