Info on lanes in south Peaks

Post by Phil » Tue Oct 30, 2012 7:12 am

Was wondering if anyone is riding any lanes on the Fri 9th in the south area of the peak district. I'm hoping to be up there about lunch time and fancy getting in a couple of lanes.

If not can anyone point out just a few lanes i could ride? as i would be on my own i only fancy tootling about on easy stuff.

I dont know the area, or have a GPS...but i do have an OS map.

Thanks

P.S Wasnt sure which category to put this under as there now a "Green lane" category.

Is that wise mate - remember your Ullapool escapades :P

Looking on Street view there's a green lane out the back of the pub (they did well to get the google maps car through me thinks).

If its the one right next to the pub its restircted so no motorvehicles unfortunately :( However, I plan to be seting up at the Bull in t'Thorn pub by midday at the latest so if you want to rock up there I can point to a few easy ones.

Very true - every time i go out on my own something "eventful" happens ;)

If all goes well im going to try and get there, set up and get ready for lunch time, so a few hours of easy lanes would be grand. ;)

As i said i dont really know the area but is it the kind of place you can just ride around and find lanes, or do you need to know where your going? even though this is no good (in my opinion) when riding on your own as finding a lane is fine....but if it turns into a nightmare half way down you could be buggered! (talking from past experience :blush: )
