    excitable1,
    I doubt you’ll get many offers of GPS tracks as all the good stuff is cheeky and invariably descends into a slagging match over what should and shouldn’t be published.
    Best way is to get someone to show you around IMHO. There’s no substitute for local knowledge.

    Oh, and be aware that distance is no indication of severity around there. They measure routes around Hebden in “smiles”, not “miles”.
    We only managed 18 miles a couple of weeks ago, but that was about 6 hours riding and 1500m of climbing.

    Whats the weather like tomorrow? I can confirm that the trails there are very dry tonight and quick.

    One thing I will say though Peckets changed? Its silted up and smoother.

    Rain during the day, clearing through.

    I can’t make it now guys.

    Enjoy!

    Same with Blue pig- its smoothed over in parts (silt/earth compacted).

    Arg, still sweating off a tediously low-level but persistent cold that I want rid of for the weekend otherwise was going to join you for this (assuming you’d have let me follow you around…)

    Have fun though, doesn’t look to have been raining too heavily and the moors were riding lovely and fast on Tuesday.

    Sitting at the Stubbing now, having a Pre feed, with the local hills scaring a southern Jessie like me!

    Weather cleared through nicely, and looking good! Thinking my 456C would have been better for the climbs than my lump of Heckler!
