Lakeland Route Advice
Best to keep referring to it as a "route", it's certainly not a ride! Lots of pushing up and down required.Posted 7 years ago
But, it's one of the best days out on a bike that I've ever done. just approach it with the right attitude.
If your stag doer's are not all riders, it may even work out for the best, anyone can push as well as the best rider!
They are all bikers but of varying standard, thanks for all the replies. Loved the one from you simon, all the riders were injured…. now that's MY kind of day out ! Not sure the future wife would agree but he I'll have a month for the bones/cuts to heal eh !
Just from looking at it on the map I can see there will be lots of pushing, so really the big question is, is it worth it? If the downs are worth the pushes/carries then game on! Any real bits to watch out for?

Hi. I am just trying to plan a good 'Stag Do' day out in July. Looking at:
Honister Hause, down by Fleetwith Pike, up over Scarth Gap, down to Black Sail Hut, up over and down Black Sail Pass to Wasdale, then up the valley, over to Sty Head then down Styhead Gill to Seatoller.
Anyone done this route or parts of it? Any advice would be great. Thanks JayPosted 7 years agoancMember
Great day out and you can ride a lot more than 50% if the fitness is good. Honister climbs doable and you can ride a fair bit of scarth gap, blacksail and Styhead. The descents are tricky and proper lakes techical rockfests but all rideable, not really for the inexperienced rider as they'll end up pushing up and then pushing down a fair bit.Posted 7 years ago
