The ridge along Low bank looking towards Buttermere.

We'd been meaning to hike up Grasmoor earlier in the year, but kept getting poor weather and opted for some lower fells instead. It was looking good this weekend though, so we took the opportunity to...

Two great descents down and soaked to the bone.

Grizedale Forest

Sunday 21st April 2013

A trip to Grizedale Forest is always worthwhile. There is the purpose built North Face trail, however this loop uses none of it, instead taking advantage of some of the many bridleways that criss-...

An overcast, windswept fellside

Black Combe

Sunday 31st March 2013

Black Combe is right next to the sea on the south western tip of the Lake District, at 1969ft, it's not quite a mountain, but certainly feels like it, climbing pretty much from sea level. There are...

Whiteside and Grasmoor from Loweswater.

Loweswater Fells

Sunday 10th March 2013

We'd originally planned to go up Whiteless Pike and Grasmoor today, however a poor forecast with snow and strong winds made a decision for some more low lying fells a more appealing alternative. As...

Quite a large group turned out for this evenings night ride - 11 riders in total. Dan had just got himself a second hand Giant full sus' and was itching to try it out. We headed off to...

Borrowdale Bash

Thursday 29th November 2012

I'd been talking with Michael and Robert Harrison about getting a bike ride sorted before the end of the year, but we couldn't find a weekend where we were all free. With a day of annual...

The Four Passes

Sunday 18th November 2012

Every now and then it's worth doing something a bit different, a full day out on the bike, taking on some new challenges. Having read the review in Singletrack mag and Grave, Tony, Scott and...

A bit of Autumn sunshine in the Lakes going down very well.

Elterwater & Hodge Close

Sunday 11th November 2012

The bridleways around Hodge Close and Little Langdale were where I started out mountain biking as a teenager and I must admit are still some of my favourite trails to ride, so with Grave and Tony...

Newlands round

Saturday 4th August 2012

It was Jen's birthday, so we decided to do a walk in the Lakes with a few summits to tick off. Jen's mum Val was up to visit and Martin and Julie from the village came along too. We parked...
