Classic Ride 138 – Cakes and Ladders

by 2

Barney takes a trip around the shivering mountain to see if some favourite old trails still pass muster on new bikes. Words & Photography Barney Marsh There is absolutely no point in prevaricating about this – if you’ve been mountain biking for more than, say, half an hour, it’s very likely you’ll have heard about the Peak District, Castleton, Jacob’s Ladder, et al. They have attained a lofty permanence amongst the trail pantheon that only a very few UK places can muster – even fewer of them in England.

    After reading this I made the trip back to Castleton so I could also reacquaint myself with an area I had long ignored, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I did however end up on the Rushup footpath side by accident but luckiky didn’t receive anything worse than a ‘mild-tutting’. 😀
