Lake District wild rides
Alright every one. Heading down to the lakes end of September for the weekend. Looking for a good day out doing a wild ride, pretty capable on my bike, so some tecky stuff is cool. Any suggestions? Going to catch a few trails at Whinlatter, so don’t want to be to far away, 3/4 hour drive tops. Cheers dudes & dudessesPosted 3 years agojekkylMember

As a local, a 20 min drive from Whinlatter, I hate the borrowdale bash. Granted there is loads of good trails and whinlatter is great for a good blast out with no navigation issues and if you park along the old main road theres some good climbing to be had thru the forest and a fast blast back down along a cycleway. If I were here I`d do the Altura trail and bollocks to what other people think 😀Posted 3 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
+1 for what biglee said in some ways, whinlatter was a great blast when I lived at the bottom of the hill but then I just used to pop up for a quick evening lap.
Borrowdale bash has a lot of road but the trails are good, it’s one to do on a nice day with ice cream at a cafe at least once on the way round.

Entirely dependant if you take the option that involves a bit of road, there are far better ways to concentrate the fun bits. Castle crags is not the best tbh, but the descent to rosthwaite makes all the rest of the ride more than worth it. Hating the bash? Bizarre.Posted 3 years ago
Try heading along to threlkeld on the cycle path, then up through the village and round Lonscale fell, then descend the spoony back to Keswick, interesting wee loop for an evening ride, just be careful riding the rocky bit coming round Lonscale. Walk if you haven’t rode it before, it’s only a few metres.Posted 3 years ago
