- peak district rides.
hey, im down on a course in penistone and will be staying down over the weekend (20-21 march)so i thought i would bring my bike down.
Happy days. Now all i need is some local knowledge on some good trails and singletrack. As long as it starts and ends around the same location. Obv where my car will be then all info and advice is most welcome.
Many thanks, MacPosted 9 years agobeefySubscriber
Cut gate starts at Langset reservoir, just over a hill or two awat, you can cycle it easily from penistone. Just google cut gate and there will be loads about it.
Wharncliffe is nearby, but is super muddy.
I would have offered to meet up as I live in Holmfirth, which is near, but I am off to ride Helvellyn in the lakes that weekend.Posted 9 years agobry4nMember
Depends on how long you want to ride for. A ride into and around Wharnecliffe could take anything from 2 – 4 hours, however, you may need some local knowledge to keep to the dry paths (they do exist). A quick 2 hour ride from Penistone around langset res. and back is dry enough. To ride over Cut Gate and back will take 5 – 6 hours and will be very wet in places so you’ll end up pushing. Unfortunately I have visitors all that weekend so I’m not riding, however if you require any information on rides let me know.Posted 9 years agothefallguyMember
from Langsett do the cut gate path and keep going, drop down to ladybower round the reservoirs taking in climb or two (hagg side etc) then back over the cut gate, classic route! can be an all dayer if you take in diversions, win hill, the beast etc etc. lots of info online.Posted 9 years ago
