- Grizedale Noth Face Trail
Its very tame and theres a LOT of fire-road. Far too much TBH. But, the singletrack sections that are there, when ridden fast, are pretty good.
Probably better to go without a novice so you can mix the NFT in with some of the BWs (and cheeky bits) which are, quite honestly, superb! Parkamoor, Breasty Haw, Devils Gallop etc all link in nicely with Grizedales BWs and the good bits of the NFT.Posted 5 years agocrispoSubscriber
Personally I rate Whinlatter a lot higher than Grizedale (in terms of the trail centre trails). There is a blue trail which, whilst not being long, is still good fun anyway.
The north and south loops of the red are both great fun. My personal favourite bit is the descent from the top of the south loop all the way back down, its great fun and goes on for ages!
Keswick makes a good place to be based for a biking weekend, we did whinlatter one day and Borrowdale bash the next.Posted 5 years agopaulrockliffeMember
Yeah, Whinlatter is better, but NFT is still good I reckon. I didn’t ride it for years because everyone on here always says that it’s crap and you should go to Whinlatter or ride the natural stuff instead. When I did end up giving it a blast I really enjoyed it, more of an xc race bike venue than a 160mm mountain-masher place though.Posted 5 years agochristhetallSubscriber
Not done Llandegla but I’d say Whinlatter is better than Grizedale for a novice. Start off with the blue, then the southern half of the red. Quick cuppa and then (if they coped OK) the northern half of the red. Repeat until tired/bored. The boardwalk sections at Grizedale can be unnerving for the unsteady, and there is more tedious fire road.Posted 5 years ago
