- It's grim up north – part 7459…………..
So I thought I’d try and sneak a little local ride in before my 14 hour shift down’t pit (after feeding my whippets and removing my flat cap obviously). 🙂
Not been on the bike for a good few weeks due to illness so it felt great to get out on such a stunning day. Trails that have obviously recently been a boggy mess were all nice and firm and crunchy.
Only had the iPhone on me but here’s a few pics.

Cheers Mary Hinge – I just got an iPhone 4S and I have to say the camera is pretty damn good for a phone.
martinhutch – it’s Farleton Knott – you drive right by it on the M6 going north from Lancaster.
I do have to get in the car for 15 mins to get there so not quite ‘out the door’ local but still pretty sweet. 🙂Posted 5 years ago
It’s not a massive area but there’s some cracking riding there including an ace old DH track. It starts just under the line of crags you can see from the motorway – skirts under them for a while then crosses and drops down some limestone pavement.
If you’re ever passing give me a shout and I can show you round.Posted 5 years ago
You even manage to make The North look less grim
It’s all Photoshop – I had to clone out all the grey skies, bleak boggy moorland and fume-spewing mills. 😉
Hi Rich – very happy to show you round what I know. I’ll have to see if my current feeling well holds up as I have an ongoing health issue, which makes me a little wary of making concrete arrangements like organising a group ride. Despite being in the ‘wrong direction’ from Kendal it’s not far and definitely worth a couple of hours or so’s ride.
I’ll try and remember to post up on here or facebook if I’m going out again – this was a little spur-of-the-moment.Posted 5 years ago
