Grizedale forest in January.
My mate and I are going to Grizedale in January for a long weekend (comming from Scotland). We have heard that it is a good trail, but I am unsure if it will be enough for a whole four days worth of riding. Is there any other trails close by? Also, if you are from that area, where is the best place to stay that is mountain bike friendly?Posted 4 years agogrumMember
I always bang on about this, but there’s absolutely superb riding in the forest, just don’t stick to the North Face. Do the it at couple of sections then head left on the BW to Breasty Haw. Then either back over to Satterthwaite or right the way down towards Coniston. Have you got the VG guide? Lots of good stuff on there – or try the Bogtrotters website.Posted 4 years agoneninjaMember
I’ve ridden at Grizedale a few times but never done the NF loop. Bit confused about the comment about it being too flat. I recall some long climbs on the bridleways and some long fast descents.
Open up an OS map and you’ll see the extensive network of bridleways covering the area including Claife Heights over looking Windermere etc.Posted 4 years agotomasoSubscriber
I’m not sure how big you want your nights out to be but if you want a session in the pub with food then Hawksheads fine. You can always go posh up at the Drunken Duck a couple of miles away.
If you look here at the boggies routes list it will be a good start. Other than Grizedale look at Claife and Parkamoor but also Elterwater for a good start.Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
Ask Junkyard how he feels about Dollywagon Pike
I think i was faster up and down than you were…is that what you mean 😉
It true though I am never ever doing that again EVER. I was happy to get down alive…then crashed on the simple section way afterwards where I somehow managed to go over the bars – it took supreme levels of ineptitude and inattention – and broke my ribs……again.Posted 4 years ago
