- Lakes Route choice
I’m off up to the lakes in a while and am looking at three (ish) natural rides to do, together with Whinlatter and some hiking. Looking at a lakes mtb book book in front of me I’m thinking of the following;
1) Garburn Pass 15km, start at Ings (Monster descent?)
2) Walna Scar – 21km (again good descent)
3) High Street North (30km) or Helvellyn (23km)?
Any thoughts, or any better choices?Posted 6 years agopascoa341Member
Hmm… sorry for going off topic, but since I have just moved down to Kendal from Hexham, I’m wondering who rides regularly there and would not mind riding with a newly starting rider (for a year or so) who has no stamina left after being out with a twisted ankle and poor back (may not sound very enticing, but I’m a nice guy, really :-).Posted 6 years agosparkingchainsMember
Thumbs up for Garburn and Walnar definitely if you’ve not done them before. Helvellyn is a good one for the challenge but obviously a lot of climbing. Descent down Dollywaggon route and Grizedale Tarn is a bit interrupted by the trail drainage ‘improvements’ but still worth it. So much to choose from that is miles more fun than any trail centre IMO.Posted 6 years ago
