    Morning all, I’m planning a first-time trip to Whinlatter this week, but I’ve seen that the last downhill section (Big Dipper, Grand National, Grandad’s Wheel) of the North Loop is currently closed for maintenance. Will I be missing out on all the best bits, or can somebody reassure me that there’s plenty of other good stuff there to make it still worth a visit…? Thanks.

    Would be a shame to miss out those sections – best bit of the north loop.

    South Loop is still good fun, I suppose.

    I wouldnt bother unfortunately. The trail centre, although good imo, isnt that long anyway. I wonder wherer the diversion will take you though?

    Anyone been recently and know if these sections are open yet? Planning on going on Sunday.

    The diversion is just along forest roads. There’s still some good bits on the north loop but it does feel like a lot of wasted climbing with the diversion.

    When did you last ride it?

    I rode it last Sunday & agree with gribbs .

    I think that the south loop is better than the north anyway, I also adore the blue loop due to just how fast you can take everything. If you go just ride the south and blue a few times instead? I, until recently, only rode the south loop until I decided that I loved climbing and then rode up the pass and then straight up the north loop as well.

    If that was the case I’d probably just go somewhere else.

    Popped up to skiddaw house yesterday, cracking ride, go there instead, if you have some more time ride the south at Whinlatter. IMHO the top of the south is the best at Whinlatter.

    NOT my video btw!

    I don’t think I have ever been to Whinlatter and it be as dry as it is in the video!
