Looks like it needs trial rider type skills (age 14)rather than trail rider skills (age 41)to get round that corner
Not my forte for sure!
If it can't be made easier with a bit more speed then I'm goosed and this certainly fits the bill.Though there does look a line down across the grass to the left of the top step , bypassing the corner which is what I would choose...but that doesn't really count does it?
Rivington steps question?

I think the only way your gonna be able to get round them is with a bit of trials skill, hopping the back wheel round etc. But then thats just me, I'm crap at steps.Posted 6 years ago #
Go full bore from winter hill, down to the main road & what a RIDE that is! must be a mile downhill that makes your arm dumb before you reach the bottom
on the steps note, does anyone ever ride up them ? my m8's a ex trails riders & the B****** can ride up most sets of steps which really pisses me off & i wish i had his skills
Ive done them once, just go a bit quicker than you think you should and skid "a bit" round the left hand bit,makes you "nip up" a tad though.
Not somert you do ever ride, rubbish route really.
Too slow and you stall.
BTW Gavin B has a cheeky drop off near his house that he lulls you into at full gas in near dark conditions. (done it a few times since Gav, its a nice decent to finish on)
i'd like to see some video evidence of such skills
the steps in the valley, back of darwen tower on the the way to tockholmes are where its at. only ever cleaned them once, tried plenty times over the years as well.
sanmarino was nuts today, fierce cross wind making every drop sketchy , seen a crazy 1 foot square sink hole on the way down too,,,, glad i missed it, proper wheel folder if you hit it at pace.
the other steep decent towards great hill, off the back of the mast was dry n fast though, pity my newly bled brakes gave up halfway down
did the ICR for the first time in a while as well and it was rough as ken BABIES YEDs all the way down,,,,,thank fk for bash guards,,,, woohoo :twisted:.
