Round 2 grizedale enduro….
Just a word of caution, the Windermere ferry will be out of action that weekend, and the Windermere/brathay marathon is on on the same day, so there are some road closures around parts of the lake. Best approach grizedale from the south, at haverthwaite, and drive up through Rusland to avoid the runners.Posted 3 years ago
Yep I’m entered, hopefully going up Friday and Saturday for a recce. I just hope my legs recover in time after doing the Fred Whitton last Sunday 😐 I heard the organisers have had permission to use some of the footpaths for the course. Apparently it’s easier to use these ( legal wise) for racing on rather than bridalways. Haven’t got a clue why this is but it’s what I was told at the last round.Posted 3 years agochris85Member

That’s what I have been told as well which is a shame as the bridleways are amazing.
POSTED 1 DAY AGO # REPORT-POST
That does seem a real shame! Only reason I wanted to do it as some of them bridleways are rocky and technical…Will they be using the trail centre now? 😐Posted 3 years ago
Stage 1 getting announced Sunday morning as its only available for 1 day with a lot of it being on footpaths.
Stage 2 is from Moor Top (?) ‘ish on the NFT back towards but not all the way to the visitor centre.
Stage 3 from the very top of Carron Crag, through what I assume is a newly cut trail into the black DH, up the fireroad at the bottom and then swing onto a footpath (I guess) and rejoin the NFT near the short boardwalk section towards the end. Blast along the flowly trail back to the VC.Posted 3 years ago
Section 1 is not being released until Sunday, as its on footpaths.Posted 3 years ago
Section 2 basically the last descent of the nf trail, starting near moor top, and finishing about half way down to visitor centre.
Section 3 is the black Dh, with a new section added at the top from carron crag, and finishes on the bottom part of the nf trail final descent.
Going for a ride up there this afternoon to have a look I think.
Stage 3 does look great, a lot of tree felling has been going on below carron crag, so be interesting riding the black Dh with no trees.Posted 3 years ago
Not looking forward to stage 2 so much, always found it hard to ride fast down there. Think that’s where ill be doing most my practice runs.
Suns out and it’s actually warm, hope it lasts until Sunday.

It’s illegal to take part in an ‘unauthorised’ race on bridleway. And I’m not sure there is any obvious way to get it authorised.
Unless stage one cuts across some BWs, sounds like there should be no bother to anyone looking to ride the normal routes on the west side of the forest on Sunday. Except maybe parking.Posted 3 years ago

Well that was a great day out! Great waether, really well organised event, lots of friendly people riding, and stage 3 is the best 5 minutes I’ve had on a bike in ages!
Thanks to the organisers, marshals, and track builders.
Second that. Great day ( well apart from coming off twice on the last stage :evil:) don’t know where I eventually finished ( was 12th in vets withe a few to come in) but really enjoyed it today. Although my dog didn’t, baying and barking at the start because he couldn’t come with me 🙂Posted 3 years ago
