Mellor Cross Descent video.

Where do you end up there mate? I’ve descended down from the cross a few times (newish to the area) but just on obvious bws and it’s a lot blander than that vid.
Vid starts here
Goes down here
straight across at the junction and down here
then a right and a left and over the horse stile and down here
to end up at the junction here
All a lot more eroded now. If you’re Marple based see my profile for the mailing list we set up for organising ridesPosted 5 years ago
Whatever you do, don’t go ‘the other way’ – the people there have pitchforks, machine guns, RPGs and stuff and aren’t afraid to use them…
I wonder if the dogs are distantly related to the very cross-patchety German shepherds who live chained-up next to a farm house on the Monk’s Road. I guess being chained-up all day long would make you cross.

I’ve been turning right through the golf course then down linnet clough. OK, but needs a bit extra to liven it up.
now you’re on the mailinglist you;ll have to get out with us. We’ll show you scout’s honour – I’m chuffed that I rode into it and rode the hard exit out of it in the pouring rain last wednesday nightPosted 5 years ago
Yes, however the trail improvements are ‘no more’, infact the wheel sized drop over the step has got so big, I got off and walked it on Sunday 🙁
nigelsnape – I too saw a couple of roe deer at the start of the Linnets clough climb a few weeks ago, beautiful to watch.Posted 5 years ago
We call that big step ‘Hoops drop’ now. http://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/i-did-a-good-thing-and-i-have-the-pic-to-prove-itPosted 5 years ago
I rode that on the cross bike the other week and I am a rubbish rider, so it can’t be even remotely hard. I did see the rubble but just assumed someone had run out of space under their patio and was burying victims al fresco with a nice glass of chianti on the side…
I bet there are bits of bone and decomposing flesh all over the trail now 🙄Posted 5 years ago
