Has anyone ridden this?
We were up yesterday and rode down the ridge to High Stile and High Crag but the descent off of Red Pike looked very tempting.
It was a good day although the section of stone pitching down to Scarth Gap wasn't the best meaning one of my mates rode the scree slope down instead. Bit gutted to see the old path zig zag down the hill but which we missed on the way down. I happily rode down the steep stone pitched trails until a small waterbar interupted the flow and I struggled to get back on the bike which was a bit annoying. The grass option wasn't as the rain meant it was greasier than a greasy thing. Still really good fun though!
Soooooooo my question is who has ridden the Red Pike descent down to Blea Tarn? The height will disappear quickly but it looks like a stunning line from across the ridge.
We carried up and rode down Fleetwith Pike after and it was brilliant despite my mate spannering himself near the top making us all that bit more careful on the way down as the rain came and went. That's the first time I've ridden it. What a belter!
