Check the grade when booking but dependant on the pass you will be looking at a true lakeland experience. Be it the classic Nant Bield or the flow of Sticks there is a pass out there for everyone!
The full Lakeland experience under the safe watchful eye of a professional, leave the map at home this time and enjoy being shown the sights and sound, advice and light coaching on how to tackle so true Lakeland tech will be included in the day.
We always recommend a well looked after mountain bike for our experience days, the right cloths for the mountains is essential and ample snacks and drink for a full day out is advised. Dont worry thought we will drop you a recommended kit list upon receiving your booking.
Four passes over two days delving you into the heart of the most remote valleys in the lakes the 2 day pass stormer is not for the faint hearted. Either spending the night nested in a remote hostel under Pillar rock in the Ennerdale valley or living it up in the remote country pub at the top of Wasdale the ride spans everything from heart pumping tech to flat out grin inducing straights. Without bigging it up too much we believe it to be one of the best rides in the lakes but why not get booked on and make your own choice!
Taking in the stunning four passes of the Lake District this package is the full mountain experience. Tackling two of the passes descending down to the idyllic and and isolated Black Sail hostel is a welcome sight. Only accessible by bridleway it is a truly wilderness experience with all the home comforts of home. After enjoying a hearty home cooked meal and a few too many beers the second day takes in two more passes skirting round Great Gable before dropping back to the vans fully satisfied with two days of the best riding in England.
Two days guiding, evening meal and accomodation and advice on how to tackle challenging lakeland terrain is all included in the weekend.
A full suspension mountain bike that is maintained to a high standard is highly recommended, we will provide you with an advised kit list season dependant, high energy mid ride snacks are always recommended as well as some comfortable clothing for the evenings stay. If you have any questions before booking about the best kit for the job dont hesitate to get in touch.
