Where's not covered in snow? Lakes, peaks?
I dont think it matters where you go your going to come across the odd drift or compated icy bit, there were deep drifts everywhere and the temps have been so low its taking for ever to completely melt them, it was -7 when i rode from grasmere to ambleside this morning, i think its just a case of not going too high and expect there to be and odd bit of snow and ice about 😆Posted 4 years ago
Don’t mind a bit of snow and ice, good job considering weather we’ve had, the stuff we had earlier in the year was fun, hard work but doable, the stuff I was riding on Friday tho was just horrible, stop start stop start, 20ft of trail then a 4ft drift, another 20ft another drift, proper rubbish ride. Just want a route that’s mostly rideable, doesn’t have to be pristine condition. Was wondering about round grazedale parkamoor satterthwaite colthouse etc. but open to suggestion.Posted 4 years agochrisdieselMember
I rode whinlatter yesterday, 4/5 inches of snow on upper levels even unridable in places due to sheet ice under snow but enjoyed it hugely and had a good laugh as we all fell off loads. I could have this the wrong way round but south side was much better than north side condition wise.Posted 4 years agoexcitable1Member
Someone said yesterday that the Garburn and Kentmere is clear but the Nan Beild is a no go.
Start at Ings, half way up the Garburn, drop into Troutbeck, through the the woods and drop in to Ambleside and then do the Loughrigg lowland loop etc ? Not a bad route, 55k. Got it on a GPS if you want it. Still doesn’t answer your questions about the snow on the route I know.
I’ve resigned myself to a trail centre tomorrow and CYB looks like its clear 🙄 (of snow at least 😉 )Posted 4 years ago
Don’t think I’ve ever been there grum, not got a proper plan yet but was thinking tomorrow morning, 9/10ish start what sort of distance*/time did you have in mind?
Excitable not sure I know the loughrigg route would appreciate gpx cheers.

Have you considered a road ride
Ha! I tried that on Friday…Posted 4 years agogrumMember
Probably no more than a couple of hours worth of entertainment (at my slow pace) there but there’s some very nice riding and scenery. Not sure about how much distance that would be. There’s a really nice little DH track you can easily session a few laps of if you want to extend it a bit.
It’s a bit further for you to travel there though so you may wish to carry on a bit further and get a longer ride in in the Lakes.Posted 4 years agobjj.andy.wMember
Just got back from riding round Grizedale ( both the bridalways and parts of TNF ). All perfectly rideable, in fact apart from the odd bit of snow it was quite dry and grippy.Posted 4 years ago
This was the worst snow of the route, at the top of the “grandad, dad and dentist” bridalway down to Satterthwaite. It was clear just further after this
