Keeper of the Peak / KoftheP
Does anyone here use this?
I read it almost daily as I work out there & ride out there a lot but I don’t have twitter so I never really contribute.
I’d like to think that this was what social media was designed for, everyone helping everyone for the greater good but even though they have 713 followers they only seem to have the same few people submitting info. I guess a sizable chunk of the followers live outside the Peak and just use it for reference when they visit so cant really contribute too often and some don’t have twitter but its seems a might small submission group for such a popular area.
Oh and if you’re wondering what it is, STW did a quick interview with them… http://singletrackworld.com/2013/10/keep-it-peaky/Posted 4 years agodawsonSubscriber

+1 – I fall into that group – if I have been for a ride in the Peak then I try to remember to post a messagePosted 4 years agosimon1975Subscriber
Yes I follow @KoftheP but rarely contribute personally. I live outside the Peak District but have been riding there regularly for 10 years. I already know which tracks/areas to avoid after wet weather, but find updates about closures and trail development interesting. And it’s always good to read about where other people have ridden and what they’ve enjoyed.
I do find that most of the updates relate to the same old “honeypot” sites around Ladybower / Edale / Hayfield which I consider to be all-weather trails anyway. I ought to start sending in updates for the rest of the Peak District and North Derbyshire…Posted 4 years agoOnzadogSubscriber
That’s the thing, I ride where I know will be rideable in conditions like this. We (the wife) will send an update to KotP. That’s why, right now, reports will seem to mention the popular spots. They’re popular because they are rideable and people who know the area will choose them because of it.
KotP really comes into it’s own during the transition periods. As stuff starts drying out in the spring, or getting soggy, is when it really shines.
I also don’t bother considering Cut Gate until KotP gets a dry report for it.Posted 4 years ago
