- Lakes Must-Do rides
Looking at doing a week’s biking in the Lakes in the summer.
I’ve done quite a few rides there over the years but still a few I want to do.
Has anyone done the likes of Nan Bield, Black Sail, Grasmoor? I know a few have done Ullock Pike (Skiddaw) but that’s a bit of a naughty one best saved for when the redsocks aren’t out in force 😉
In the past I’ve done Helvellyn, High Street, Ullswater singletrack including Boredale, Garburn pass from Staveley (the wrong way), Claife Heights, Grizedale (inc THF trail), Borrowdale Bash, Langdale/Loughrigg/Hodge Close, Back o’ Skiddaw a few times, Whinlatter.
I really fancy travelling around and camping near to where the trails are.Posted 4 years ago
What do you recommend as must-do’s to add to my ‘done’ list? CheersthekettleMember
Nan Beild into kentmere is excellent. Best accessed by going up Gatesgarth pass and over Harter Fell (cheeky but quiet).
Black Sail into Wasdale is excellent, and Stake Pass into Langdale. The latter can be ridden from langdale – Rosset Ghyll/Esk hause/StyheadPosted 4 years ago
Numerous other cheeky ones, grasmoor included.GavinBSubscriber
I think my fave Lakes route (to date – I’m still searching) is the Four Passes route
I used to count a big loop of Coniston Water in there too, but since some OTT resurfacing work on Walna Scar road, its not what it was. To summarise: clockwise from Coniston village around to Grizedale forest, south down Parkamoor, west across Blawith Moor on to Stephenson Ground, then up to Walna Scar Road and descend to Coniston.Posted 4 years ago
