- Lake District riding?
I’m going up to the Lake District for the next couple of weeks, and was hoping to get some riding in.
Anybody up that there that can point me in the direction of some group rides, night rides or who just fancies going out for a ride with me?
Otherwise I’ll be following my OS maps I guess, fun, but never the best way!
(Hmm still deciding on whether to bring my Five, or the Soul, Big earl wets are good for Lakeland stuff? or bring the Mud X’s?)

We meet at 630 every Tuesday night at the Pedlar cafe in Keswick,Be prepared to carry….a lot,Hip flasks are optional,But do bring all the relevant gear for a high level mountainbike ride, you would be made very welcome.Manditory beer int pub afterwards,as mr smith says.
“some” good brains to pick

Thanks guys, this looks good.
Unfortunately I’m heading up tomorrow but would be very doubtful I’d make it up there and get my gear sorted to make a ride when I got there. (staying near a village called Rosthwaite, a few miles south of Keswick)
I’ll try and meet up with the Bogtrotters on Wednesday though, and a night ride with you guys next Tuesday would be ace! (have hip flask at the ready). I had a peek at ridethelakes too, so might post a message up there tomorrow.
Currently have 2 bikes out, soul needs a clean, but I’m edging that way… quick tyre change and I’m a goodun 😉
Looking forward to it!

Great ride thanks, Mike and all the others. Definitely the most hospitable ride i’ve every been on. Hot mince pies, warm mulled wine, Sherry, and other hip flasks before during and at the top, stollen? (sp??), chocolates..nomnom. And then free beer and sandwiches at the pub after.
Turns out my willy jumper would have been quite suitable with the quality fancy dress riding going on!
I should return down south now and always keep this as the picture of a standard Lakes ride
Looking forward to a rerun next week!
@boxelder, sounds great I would definitely be up for that, I’ll send you an email now.
Planning to start exploring the Borrowdale bash tomorrow before the snow hits.
