- Farleton Knott
Been there 3 or 4 years now (I take it you mean the singletrack that runs from the crag to the edge of the quarry). Some belting jumps down at the bottom – worth a few runs through.
Cracking little spot for a ride and underused by bikers. You can link 3 decent climbs and descents, all criss-crossing the summit for a decent morning’s riding.Posted 6 years ago
robhornby89 – I live in Lancaster, I could show you at some point, it’s not that easy to explain. Or I believe the bogtrotters go up there reasonably often. Think I’m going to head up there today actually. 🙂
jwt – that’s not the bit I know of either – I normally go on the bit on the other side that comes down from the climbing crags and cuts across the limestone pavement. Pretty sure that’s the bit that used to be a proper DH course.Posted 6 years ago

I’ve just moved to lancaster, looking for a place to ride, can any of you tell me the best way to get there/place to park and get started?
Easiest way is to go through Burton in Kendal (from Pine Lakes side) and about half a mile out of the village, turn right signposted Clawthorpe. I think there’s a caravan site or something next to the turn off. About half a mile up that road there are a few trails heading off to the left – plenty of laybys and verges to park on.
It’s a nice compact place to explore – the bit in the vid is down the north side, loads of little trails through the gorse bushes.
Have fun!Posted 6 years agosamcamsdadMember
There are two tracks on farlton, the old race track on the front, and some new illegal stuff round the back. both good fun to ride, but look out for the farmers, have been known to threaten bikers with big guns
Jwt, what did you reckon to the stuff that may or may not be in kentmere? 😉Posted 6 years ago
rob – weekends are not usually good for me either. Weds or Thursdays are often ok for me. I know where the stuff in Kentmere is too but it’s mostly too ‘core for me. 🙂
