Kielder 100 – gpx?
I’m up that way later in the week for work & fancy a decent length ride on my day off. Presuming the old Kielder 100 route was all on public trails, does anyone have a gpx or similar handy please? Open to other ideas as well. Cheers!Posted 6 years ago
Haven’t got a gpx of it all, but I am also pretty sure it wasn’t all on public trails… Or am I think of the Merida/CRC/Mercedes/whoeveritisnow marathons…Posted 6 years ago
Well, I took a photo of the map for the first one – good luck following that!
Should be able to download this gpx.
I’ve got a gpx of the 2011 route, as above a bit of it wasn’t on public trails. Happy to email or over if you still want itPosted 6 years ago
I did the Kielder 50 route the year it was cancelled, and a fair bit of the route was not on public ROWs. I didn’t see anyone else all day, so it wasn’t really an issue, except for the number of times I had to climb over/under fallen trees or hike through unrideable undergrowth. Not sure I’d bother with the hassle again!Posted 6 years ago
Thanks guys. Considering it wasn’t all on public trails, I think I’ll come up with an alternative in the area…maybe a mixture of the Cross Border trail, the lake loop and some other stuff. Cheers.Posted 6 years ago
You’d be better doing the Lonesome Pine/Cross border/Newcastleton route to start with then if you’ve got any extra energy left do the Deadwater and the Osprey. Or the other way around. Add on the Lakeside Way at the end to completely knacker yourself. Don’t discount the blue Osprey route – the singletrack is fantastically flowing, grin inducing fun.
Thanks andyr, will follow that advice.Posted 6 years ago
If you do the Lonesome Pine/Bloody Bush, Deadwater and Osprey trails then you’ll probably end up going further than the Cross Border Route with a bit more singletrack for your effort (I reckon it’s about 65km with 1500m ish of climbing for all 3).
Here’s a link to a shortened version of all three trails (I missed out Bloody Bush and the top of Deadwater, and a new bit of the Osprey has been added since): https://app.strava.com/activities/24801482#442703938Posted 6 years ago
Ok great thanks. I’ve put together a pretty decent Tracklogs route based on Cross Border Route / Deadwater / Osprey / Lake Loop. Should be enough considering I have to drive six hours home afterwards 🙂Posted 6 years ago
