So assuming it thaws out over the next couple of weeks, i'm going up to the lakes with my family for a holiday and i'm allowed to sneak my soul into the van. Thinking of sneaking off to whinlatter or grizedale for a couple of hours.
I'm still a trail centre noobie and most of my local stuff is fairly XC style but i did manage whites level at afan the other day fairly happily. How does it compare?
I did afan in flats which was fine except for the initial technical climb but lately i've been using spd's at home cos there's nothing that scary downhill. worth sticking the flats back on for dabbing confidence? Are the whinlatter climbs mostly fireroad style?
Fundamentally.................. will i die?
(Obviously unless it warms up i might be better off with a snowboard instead!!)
