pm sent .the patriot will be fine .i ride certain sections on my 6" bike & im faster than on the ht carbon.
there is a few challenging climbs but nothing we can,t wait for.
it certainly won,t be freeride but im certain no one will be dissapointed.
there are a few gates on one of the sections but they are close together so the pain is quickly eased as we then blast all the way down for a couple of miles on a lovely bit of singletrack.
the route will start from the pub & turn right up the road for 3/4 mile.we take the old road on the right all the way down to the bridleway. up waste lane.dick dean lane ,hopefully the mud on top will of eased since last time i was there,this is the only muddy section.
we then have a half decent blast dh to hc craggs/allready half way up the climb we go up for a short period onto the national trust house all the way on to widdop.all fire roads on this bit but not for long.
the best climb of the day up widdop.we then turn right down gorple stones which is an exellent little decent.tha patriot will love this bit.either that or ill swap you bikes just for this bit.wink...
then down to the other resovoir.then another climb up all the way to the top along & down to land farm along & upto the next farm & down to new deli pub.
we then turn right up killer hill bow lane then down an exellent tight rocky track all the way to the main road where we cross over & head for studley pike. we then can either decide enough is enough or go upone sid of studley & back down or head straight down the mad road into hebden by the co-op.
this is only brief but a rough idea.
