Hi North West & Welsh peeps.

I cant make it to the Ride in wales this weekend but a few of us newbies are going to do the DIGGLE JIGGLE on sunday

http://www.nationaltrail.co.uk/PennineB ... ?PageId=89


Its just a 11 mile starter for us and theres a few pubs on route :D


Has anyone got any experience of this route or any other Oldham / Saddleworth trails?


Hope you have a good ride easter sunday and I will put up pictures once completed.


Its a bit snowy up on the hills at the moment, hope it clears.

Just got back ... I'M BUGGERED !!!


This ride is sooo hilly its untrue, even the straights are gradients !!

It was worth it for the scenery tho, everwhere just looks so nice from way up there

Frequent hail-storms sucked


My Stinky dee-lux was not the best bike to ride due to the long travel on the uphill sections as it just sapped energy.

Downhill was another story, just took the bumps with ease..


My rear cassette is fubard now, was having a nightmare on the climbs with it swapping gears & skipping and found out in the carpark when finished that it is loose and has about 2 cm play in it!!


Heres a couple of piccies.

Start..

Great scenery and having ridden in that area, I can confirm that the hills around Diggle are big a very steep.
We'll have to organise another ride in the vicinity soon.
