I've seen your 'pioneering classic killer routes' before Si :shock: . Thinking of a route recce this Saturday from Settle to Mallam, it's from the 'What Mountain Bike' magazine CD-Rom you got in this months issue. Looks fantastic, anyone fancy joining the recce?


looks like a great ride but a 380 mile round trip is not really worth it for me, could make the lakes but just a wee bit to south for me :(

Was thinking that last night, so might go for the Farleton fell to Kirby Lonsdale ride as it's only 2 mins off the motorway at Kendal. Just need to piece a few trails together.

@ Mr Kawasaki
We need to get a locked sticky thread up with a calendar of rides clearly listed so as to avoid clashes now that the area groups are maturing.

Is there anything you can do?

Cheers

Would be aiming to be between 20 and 25 miles with a good mixture of off road and quiet country lanes, finishing on the old national DH course (which i've now ridden twice now on a rigid without too much issue, plus there are bailout routes for those wishing to refrain). Hard to give an accurate time scale but would expect 3 to 4 hours of actual riding.

Once the recce is done i'll post up a thread in the events section and we'll go from there.
