- Coniston / North Face Trail linking routes?
Week on Saturday is about the only day I can’t make it. That will have to be a Rivi morning. (Mother in Laws 300th birthday. OK I exaggerate, but she’s OLD, and the way her siblings are dying she won’t have too many more, so I have to go!)
Free this Saturday (Can easily cancel the planned Todmorden ride). Free next Wednesday, or the Weds after. Otherwise just about any Saturday apart from Feb28.
Thinking about it could do week on Sunday if that’s any use.
Don’t worry about fitness, at present I’m spending lots of time at the osteopath, so my back don’t take rough use kindly.Posted 9 years ago
OK fine by me. Mail me early next week and we’ll finalise.
I’m not a racer, and believe that air belongs IN tyres, not UNDER them. Whilst I’m not the fastest I’m always there at the end of the ride.
Other than that I’ve got all the prejudices going. Wifey says that I’m the original grumpy old man, and maybe she’s right 👿Posted 9 years ago
Lowey’s route is not hard. The worst bit is the fire road from High Cross to Parkamoor; it goes on forever. Easily doable in a day. I was thinking along the lines of start on NFT, Parkamoor, Satterthwaite, then work east down The Fox to Claife Heights then back through Colthouse, Hawkshead and finish on NFT (if you must!).
Open to suggestions and bribery.
Is Lowey coming?Posted 9 years ago
finish on NFT (if you must!).
I’ll quite happily forget about that if you want – originally I was going on my own and didn’t know any routes so thought the NFT would be a good start, but now I’ve got a guide…………..I’m ha[ppy to go where you think is best.
Is Lowey coming?
I’ve never met him other than following some of his rivvy routes posted on here, but anyone is welcome as far as im concerned.
My mate who fancies it doesn’t really come on here as he doesn’t get near a PC much, but he does ride regular and very easygoingPosted 9 years ago
Agreed, but if you are going to stick rigidly to that route then you will have to ride up Walna Scar which
is great and would be a waste to ride up it
As above^^^^there’s a lot to do round there, so much that you can’t do all the good things in one ride. You will have to make compromises somewhere, or go more often.Posted 9 years ago
DeeJay, sure, you guys can come any time. Always happy to see the Darlo crowd. Only problem is Yoshimi says he’s not that fit. I’ve never met him, so have to go on what he’s just posted. The Undertaker, fatgit, yourself etc might burn him off. It’s yoshimi’s shout, but might be better if we fix up a separate meet. Sooner the better? What you doing this w/e? Weds/Fri next week?Posted 9 years agoloweySubscriber
Might be able to join you if its a Sunday.
Seeing as Fagus mentioned the Fox, I’d like to revisit the cheeky minx :-
Yoshimi, you cant go wrong around Coniston or Grizedale. Simply 1st class riding.
Look at my fotopic site (click my name above) for plenty of pictures of the area. Its Ace.Posted 9 years ago
DeeJay, was planning Todmorden on Saturday, but always open to better offers. Twist my arm 😉
Where are you off? Fancy Garburn this time? Or somewhere round Coniston – one of the above routes?
Is Ton coming? If so on which of his bikes 🙄
Lowey – be great to meet on 1st if you can make it.Posted 9 years agotonSubscriber
frank, i hope your not suggesting what i think you are….Posted 9 years ago
Deejay, you’re more than welcome pal – I really won’t be offended if yuo guys drop me off the back of the peleton (just make sure you point me in the right direction before you do) – last thing I want is for me to be holding anyone up and ruining their days riding and thats why I’m always a bit cautious about arranging rides with people I don’t know. I’m just desperate to get up there and get to know some of the trails as a bit of a change to riding round Rivvy.
Lowey, love the photos pal, can’t wait to get up there now. Pretty sure we’re looking at week on sunday (1st march) – be good if you could come:)Posted 9 years ago
