Jacob's Ladder route :shock: :twisted:
I'll push :lol:

I'm staying off suspensionless bikes for a while as trying to get my right wrist sorted and no it's not that reason before anyone starts. :roll:

Got an MRI next week with a view to having an op.
It was painfull after Drumlanrig so will be on my five till its sorted me thinks.

Here are some of those guidebooks I was talking about:

Image
These ones were published between 1991 and 1993.

Image
The one on the left is from 1991/92 and on the right from 1997.

Image
And here is the Jacobs Ladder route from the 91/92 'Mountain Bike Guide'

I think this book is the one I'd want to work my way through.

I was bought that book when I lived near Chesterfield, just before I moved away to uni, so never did get to go through it, would be cool to do the routes on my Avalanche using the actual wheels I still have though.

I've got one for the North Dales that I would love to work through but it is a little bit newer than those classic ones. :D

Anyone fancy another attempt at the Ribblehead-Dentdale ride later on in September?



I would like aswell, but need firm dates so I can arrange time off, two of a six man team off sick at the moment.

That Jacob's ladder route seems to be backwards to me, sure it's much better the other way round!

Afraid that Chapel Gate had been brutalised by JCBs the last time I was up there :cry: Not all the way up, but they had made quite a mess of it :(
