He has done it before a few times FWIW ..I am sure he ha snot been put off ..not least because I want to do it again
Snowdon walkerists, friendly bunch huh?
funny people mentioned skiddaw and ullswater, I never do those at a weekend, it'll be too busy you silly billy dunno why snowdon didn't occur to me as being just the same.
I guess April still seems a bit early to be booking days off for riding and early/late runs are a bit impractical for me.
I'm not put off monkeysfeet, will be back

I just can't agree with the simplistic "You rode a honeypot at the weekend, It's your fault!"
Some of us work five days a week and only have the weekends available to us.
On those weekends, we want to ride high mountain passes, big days out in big mountains and techy descents.
We have little choice therefore but to continue riding Skiddaw, Ullswater, Snowdon, Ben Nevis (if I ever get around to it), etc., at weekends.
Yes I accept that I won't have the place to myself and will of course be courteous and generally treat others as I would want them to treat me, BUT... I don't see why I should be expected to avoid those honeypots.
I'm painfully aware that I'd enjoy them better if I could ride them during the week BUT I don't have that luxury.
Correct, and if you want to avoid busy part's of the day you go early or late. Simples. Riding gets done either way, happiness resounds. Job done. Smiles
