- Top downhill routes in the UK?
Think the OP meant a full 500m drop in height….not sure anywhere in Calderdale fits his narrow criteria no matter how good the riding
500m+ in height???!! 😯
i would have thought getting up there would make most of these “runs” a bit of of most peoples’ reach.Posted 6 years agoChristoGingerMember
what? man you need to go to the top! 😀
the first bit is loose shale/rocks that gets you up to mega speed sharpish, then take the left hand route over the grass as the shale turns to the right – that makes a big old difference. We used to go up loads and on a clear day/evening you can see for miles and miles.

i would LOVE if STW/Ragely organised a mini DH race there
its been done.
Some kid also tried to do it ‘properly’ by advertising a downhill race, using Barely Legal as the top section, down into the lower section of Blue Pig. Good idea – holding a DH race on a footpath! Council or whoever got wind and pulled the plug but there’d been a ‘practice day’ type thing up there anyway and royally fecked it up.Posted 6 years ago
