I might do one way and get collected. I am not very fit.
Will it be a big car that collects you? Any room for me??
Its 19 years since I rode over Cut Gate and it almost killed me then- back when I was young and fit and stupid.
Cut gate is a bit of a Demon for me. On that last visit myself and three friends got caught out up there. It was February and frozen solid and the going was slow. We spent too long in the Ladybower pub at mid point and on the return, halfway across the moor the fog rolled in, followed quickly by darkness. We had no lights or warm clothing and we had not told anyone where we were. There are no lights to head towards or nothing up there. We eventually abandoned our bikes as riding was impossible. We had to grope our way down from there almost on all fours. I have never been as cold or scared in my life. We made it back to the car around midnight- severly cold, dehydrated and hungry. We hammered on the door of the Flouch Inn and called an ambulance for one of the guys who was showing signs of Hypothermia and we had a long wait trying to keep him awake until it arrived. The landlord made up beds and gave us brandies and chip butties and we slept on the pub seats. We had a very long walk next day to get our bikes back, which we thought we had hidden some way from the path, only to find them smack in the middle of it. It was a horrendous experience but taught me to respect the hills. I sure was glad to see my 17th birthday that summer.
Hopefully that hasn't put anyone off
Should be good to exorcise both legs and demons on the 25th
