conditions in the lakes
Kentmere was rideable on Monday night with the HP wood and 3 rivers descents being highlights. The climb up from Kentmere hall had a lot of soft snow and was basically a push. It took 2hr20min, double what the ride that would normally take.
We have had another 3 inches of snow since then as well so the conditions have no doubt changed. I think you may struggle to do any meaningful riding but there is plenty of fun to be had.

Generally in these conditions best to stick to the woods so Grizedale first as it lower in altitude terms than Whinlatter and also easier to get to when it snows (you can park in Hawkshead and go from there if the the road to moor top is inpassable).Posted 7 years ago
There is still plenty of snow here and the temperature is only just getting above 0 during the day so nothing is really melting at the moment. Pretty heavy going on foot round Grasmere so bikes won’t be much easier.Capt. KronosSubscriber
It was like this yesterday in the South Lakes:
And is pretty much the same still today to be honest. There is a fair bit of ice about which would be my main worry and it is going to be worse in Keswick. But probably worth taking the bike… just incase 😉Posted 7 years ago
