- Peaks (ladybower) tomoro (Fri) good idea? or mad?
want a ride and good views/fresh air and that. whats the snow like, ridable?
i’m thinking a few little loops from ladybower, so i’m never that far from car.
i do think i might have to walk a bit, but as long as its not the downhill bits i don’t mind, so whats your thoughts? any suggestions what to ride and what not to?Posted 5 years agodjgaryMember
im about 15 mile as the crow flies away from ladybower and its starting to snow quite hard now round here now, the forecast is for it to get much worse by tomorrow so its probably quite a risk.Posted 5 years ago
the other thing to think about is the A57 in particular tends to get closed very quickly in any adverse weather so at best you will have a wasted trip up there but at worst you may get there but be unable to get back.
if you really want to get out there in the snow then a better option is the train to edale and do jacobs ladder down in to hayfield then ride back to new mills for the train, much safer in my opinion considering the warnings we have been getting.
whatever you choose ride safe and take essential gear to keep warm.rogerthecatMember

The ground is nice and frozen so good riding but don’t forget that under the snow there may be tyre ruts.
I’m about 3 miles from Ladybower.
If the roads are passable it could be a hoot.
@ the podge I also work out here – whereabouts are you based?
