- – pass storming –
Please talk to me about your favourite trail that threads it’s way through the mountains by way of high passes, photo’s would be grand, I guess mine would be the tour of Gable, although I eagerly await the spring and a shot at the Torridon corrie Lair circuit, this will be hard to beat i’m sure.Posted 5 years ago
Hardly ‘pass storming’!, but I liked this image from conic hill.
And I won a camelbak from MBR for this one!
I like this one too…

Aye, the torridon classic is very hard to beat. Both big descents, coire lair and the bealach na lice down to annat are crackers, but I think it’s just the feeling of being made to feel small and insignificant in between all those behemoths of rock that makes it special.Posted 5 years ago
Warnscale is that the introduction to the four passes?, got the tee shirt I think, certainly didn’t ride the lot though, some serious sphincter action on the way down.
Nan Bield is a corker, but must do it in reverse, after watching some vid of a couple of riding gods in full flow, some proper features to tackle.Posted 5 years ago

Might as well stick in the Annat descent too, modelled by 13thFloorMonkPosted 5 years agoSannySubscriber
Whiteless Pike down to Rannerdale Knotts – mmmmm!
Rossett Pike down to Seatoller – double mmmmmmm!
High Street down to Angle tarn.
Fairfield Horseshoe in the snow – outstanding.
The switchbacks off of Castle Crag – tough but look amazing in pics.
Doups – steep and steep!
Curiously, all in the Lakes and all cheeky!Posted 5 years agoroverpigSubscriber
Thanks for all the great pictures folks. Another few inches of snow fell overnight here in Aberdeenshire, which means another few feet in the mountains and that means another few weeks at least before it could be clear. It’s nice to be reminded that it will clear one day though and that there are some great rides out there to look forward to.
Cheers.Posted 5 years agoDoctorRadSubscriber
I used to have a Rough-Stuff Fellowship magazine with a reproduction of an article from the 50s or 60s. It detailed the journey of a chap who did something like 10-15 of the major Lake District passes in a single weekend (or was it 24 hour period?) riding a fixie. He also rode to and from the lakes from Lancaster or further and was back at work on the Monday morning.
They don’t make ’em like that any more. Would be interesting to see if his record could be beaten on a modern mountain bike.Posted 5 years ago
