Fat demo in Hebden Bridge – Reccomend some tracks please
Sunday we have a demo of a Fat bike in Hebden Bridge
We do not know Hebden Bridge too well. We normally go for long day rides from there over to howarth & back.
If you know some other good trails that will show off the Fat bike to its potential please tell me. Streetmap links would be appreciated.Posted 4 years agobrantSubscriber
I rode mmmbop top steps on a proto onone fatty once. I think that was the last time I cleaned it.
Ali’s Wound is good fun too. Plenty drifty right now.
Steps of Death.
It’s just a fat bike. Just ride the regular trails. They’re a hoot.Posted 4 years agogrumMember
Where do beechnuts, ali’s wound and kebab st go from? Email in profile if we’re not allowed to say here. 😉
I just moved to Hebden and know most of the stuff in that video but I’m intrigued to know if I’m missing out on bits and I’m always interested to find out names. Feels like there’s still a lot to discover.
And all this stuff too:
‘Steps of Death.

Grum – I wouldn’t worry too much. I’ve lived here all my life and it is only in the last couple of years I have refered to North Well as the ‘Blue pig’! I haven’t a clue what most of them are called this week, but I’ve probably ridden them…Posted 4 years ago
If you find out – let me know – email in profile!
This bit is punch the wall
Out of PTW, you can turn left and go back up Bastard Tarmac, or carry on straight over into BeechNuts. Marked as a footpath on the streetmap but looks like a bridleway to me
dunno the othersPosted 4 years ago
We did go through Slack, yes, and there was a dayglo-orange Five in the group. Mightnot have been us that you saw though, at 2pm ish the fatbike was on the road up to Heptonstall from Hebden
we did midgehole, gibson mill, punch the wall, beechnuts, jack bridge climb, washing line, blue pig, a river runs through it, then lunch in hebden. After lunch I dibbed out as my back brake was sticky, the fatbike and the dayglo went up the road to Heptonstall and down Blue pig again, then played around on the bottom of Pecket Well. Nice day out and quite infested with the who’s who of northern STW posters – at various times through the day I saw Hp_source, Ed Oxley, Dale, Mr Potatoehead, JustMe, Goatster, Grum, Chipps, Makepiece and Matt Letch.Posted 4 years ago
More than one fattie out then I guess.
Was going to come and join you lot but met up purely coincidentally with a riding buddy on Stubbin’ carpark so we wandered off to do some cheekier stuff… and then bumped into the Sweary Northeners.
Sounds like everyone was out around Hebden.Posted 4 years ago
nbt – I take it that is you Jules ?
Fat Bike review – Fab – I’m hooked.
Going up on rough or smoothe – really surprising how it just wanted to go & go. It climbed up stuff you just would not normally ride, & on jiggly stuff it was like riding on air !!!
Going down. On some stuff, such as Beechnuts I would say it was faster than the other bikes, including my day glow Orange 5, it was so confidence inspiring.
The only place it possibly struggled was on really lumpy downs like Peckets Well B ( I think it’s B – the one with the felled tree), where the track was very lumpy. You just had to take care as it likes to buck about.Posted 4 years ago
