Ok, but given that I went over the bars doing sometihng similar on Stoodley Pike, which isn't even steep, I can't help thinking it will end badly for me. I'll need Bombers.
I'm taking Thursday/Friday off the week after next to go riding in the Lakes if you fancy it Peachos?
Cat Bells ridge is good, not done it in years, there was a bit on there I couldn't ride, would be good to go back to use it as a measure of progression, I suspect I can ride it now. Just got to watch out for walkers. It's not as good as the short blast down the front of Barrow though.
