I'm off to the Lakes this weekend, mainly to do a big walk with mates on Saturday and then drink beer. We're camping at the national trust site in Langdale. On Sunday morning I'd like to do a ride before coming home - my first thought was to head to Grizedale forest but the website site says that it's only 10 miles long, so would be over a bit too quickly. I've no knowledge of mountain bike routes at all in the Lakes but I can read maps and navigate! I'll have another guy with me who is a mate but whom I've never ridden with before. We're too averagely fit blokes, me 41 years old, him 50 I think. So no going over Black Sail Pass or similar for us...but a leg-burner here or there is ok...
Looks like we'll have cracking weather!!
Your suggestions will be gratefully received, with approx. mileage/timing ideally!
