What trails are currently ridable in central Britain?
Got next week off and were planning to do a few days in Glentress, but the cross country skiing report that someone linked to suggests that it won’t really be any good for cycling at present.
We’ll be mainly based near Haltwhistle* for the week as a whole but are happy to drive somewhere else for a few days biking. So do any of you know which of the following are snowbound:
I’ve mentioned trail centres only as it’s probably easier to get conditions info, but if anyone has any top quality routes they have done recently which happen to be free from snow then please let me know too:
Maybe those bald hills on the right as you drive up the M6 past the Lake District have been wind blown enough (Howgills?)

Waiting for update on Hamsterley but looks like its still snow bound. Dalby is clear based on Horas report but it will take you ages from Haltwhistle (probably 3.5hours). From what i can see the Pennies around Blanchland etc still look to have a reasonable amount of snow on them. I might go up and investigate later. Glentress also looks to still be snowy. Be interested in Mabie though guessing as its on the west coast its got a battering.Posted 4 years ago

The uplift guys @ Descend Hamsterley said it was snowing heavily there yesterday (sat 30th) and no uplifts scheduled until next Wednesday. I’ve just been up in Northumberland and it looks pretty clear but can see the snow on the Cheviots. So I may try Thrunton tomorrow morning; as long as it doesn’t snow tonight!Posted 4 years ago
