This is the 4th of 5 mountain biking days in the lake District. 

This is a good (for good read big) day out nearly 30k in length and with 900m of ascent a good pair of legs will be put to the test.

We start by taking the first climb of the north Face Trail (which is probably the best bit of the TNF trail….) After gaining height on this technical climb we leave the forest for while well head south on the open ridge that is Parkamoor. With views down to Coniston water this is the highlight of the day.

After a few more ups and down we get to climb the amusingly named  ‘Breasty Haw’, and then bounce hard and fast down her. The final climb is steep, but takes us to the Grizedale Fox (cue cheesy team photo)

A last descent on potatoes and baby’s heads takes us back to the visitor center in time (hopefully) for for tea and medals….

This day ride is only suitable for experienced mountain bikers on good mountain bikes. (Not suitable for beginners or hybrid bikes, sorry!)

For those camping, we aim to leave at 09:00 and then drive to Grizedale Forest visitor centre

During these five days you can pick and choose your attendance as you like. We are bringing together members of our group in one valley where we will do a number of different activities each day and socialise in the evenings.  

The activities will depend on which leaders attend and the weather at the time but we already have walks and mountain biking lined up with more activities to follow as other leaders sign up. 

The Langdale Valley is an amazing location with many options of walks, climbs, rides and more from the campsite or within a short drive we can explorer further afield.

OutdoorLads will have booking options likely for the Great Langdale NT campsite in the next few months which will enable us to have the group field so please look for further details soon.

I'll be staying at the Great Langdale NT Campsite from the Tuesday afternoon which is a short walk to several pubs for the evenings but there are many other places to stay including the Old Dungeon Gill Hotel, New Dungeon Gill Hotel, Langdale Hotel, Elterwater Hostel, Baysbrown Campsite, Great Langdale Bunkhouse & more.
