    The climb up to Urra moor is quite steep but a reasonable surface – last time I did it ~5 years ago
    Then it’s hard pack across the moor, I don’t know the descent down to Cockayne though

    Don’t know about BW from Seave Green but I seem to remember Medd Crag along the earthworks to the main track is ok. The big drop & climb out of Tripsdale is a wide sandy track. Across Slape Moor to BW split – LH steep or right along Bransdale Ridge to road & then left down road/bw to Cockayne

    The climb from Seave Green gets very steep in places in the woods (East Bank Plantation), but the surface is generally OK, we usually use it as a quick but painful way of getting some height out of Chop Gate. The last bit from the woods to the track on Urra moor is a definite push – steep & tussocky grass.

    You (we) need to go from Cockayne to Seave Green Ton. I’m in planning mode!

    Essel, nice one.
    Nick, this saturday i hope……Essel?

    Just been talking to my riding pal Ton, It’s a bogfest up there & the tracks are as soft as shite (softer if your’e on a heavy bike)
    Hows about a Swaledale trip this weekend & wait till it dries a bit on the NYM?

    ok mate….20ish mile route in swaledale should be a good tester for the motor.

    Tracks in Swaledale are in surprisingly good nick after nearly 35mm of rain on Friday alone! According to the Dales Bike Centre weather wotsit there has been 590mm of the stuff so far this year – must be all those lead mines draining it away 😯

    I’m off Saturday – any chance of joining in?

    Only if you don’t laugh at the 3 filing cabinets that’ll be there.

    just to let anyone intersted know, i tried to get to tripsdale this afternoon…with my leccy bike.
    from seave green, i went up the b/w that takes you up to the woods (east bank plantation), i made it halfway through before the surface (slippy/muddy) and my inhability to push the hefty bike up forced me to retreat.
    i then went for the next b/w north of the woods. i managed to ride all the way up to the last gate before the earthworks….but the steepness forced me to push the last 200 meters (left me fubared)
    i then followed the b/w east to the 1st junction and followed the b/w across urra moor, and down the steep cobbled steppy descent to the road. it was very nice for a couple of hours exploring.
