- good all day routes around grizedale
A few of us from south Wales are staying up in grizedale from this Friday for a long weekend. 🙂
My pal has been before but has only ridden the trail center. Can anyone recommend us some good routes in the area? Any suggestions or weblinks much appreciated.
Someone to guide us would be even better 😀Posted 8 years agovermillionMember

You can’t really fail on BWs in Grizedale IMO. Just make sure you include the Parkamoor-NIbthwaite descent. Breasty Haw is ace too.
Vermillions route would be pretty good. I would normally do something similar but starting/finishing at the VC and using the first bits of the NF trail to get towards Parkamoor. There is a great fairly techy BW descent to the VC you can finish with as well, on an old riverbed.Posted 8 years agotandemwarriorsMember
Slight hijack, but me and Mrs tandemwarriors are also in Grizedale this weekend, staying in the camping pods for a friends birthday biking bash. I’ve done a few rides round there but am reading the routes with interest.
Also any pub recommendations for eating at night, budget end of the scale?
