all being well im intending to do macclesfield forest from the cat & fiddle (2nd highest pub in england ) its a bit of a test ride again in that i havnt done the macc. forest part for something like 8 years. its approx.18 miles, 4 hours+. ups and downs, despite being a forest theres not many trees strangely enough mostly out there moors feeling.
Gonzalo, Have you still got chance to do a cheeky gisburn visit on your way to or from your lakes meeting?
Yup...not this week because I'm taking the missus with me. However I'm supposed to go to Gisburn on the 13th November if you can make it? After that, 23rd or 24th for Gisburn. When is the new steed arriving?
Let me know nearer to the 13th if it's a defo and remind me, who are you going with? If not the 23 or 24 the should be okay but confirm for sure nearer the time. Once you've been on the 13th you may not want to go back so soon after.
You should try lee quarry as well before it becomes derelict. It's a bit marmite and people who go without knowing how to best piece it get her think wtf but it's worth a visit especially when every else is a mud fest as it's mostly rock and hardback so you get a little wet but not slipping in mud.
No worries John! I will let you know! Yeah, I know what you mean about LQ...some people say it's the best, some that is sh1t!? Looking forward to do Gisburn...will probably give Whinlatter another try toon one of the trips this year.
C'mon, which bike is it? Send me via mobile message if you prefer...
no probs john. in that case im canceling this ride . mrs sixo has decided sh'ed like to go for pub grub somewhere,we're not getting many days off together lately, so im going to do a quickie from home first. my days off next week are wed./thurs/ fri. if that suits.
Do Wharny Glynn...I hope to do it again this weekend...and maybe Cannock or Gisburn...
G, if you wanted to do Gisburn on Sunday morning (nice day) I was talking tentatively to Gaz about visiting on Sunday.
I would have to start around 9am so I'm done for sure by 12/12.30 but normally its only 2 hours so that would allow for some extras or a couple of goes at the bike park style hope line which everybody tends to love.
I gotta be home to take over the kids as my wife goes to work but might be good for you as frees up sometime.
let me know, gaz as well, as if its a goer I will ride tomorrow, rest Saturday and do the family stuff and then Sunday. My old bones need that day recovery lol.
Guys... I'm doing Wharny again this Sunday at 9am...after convincing Nick to do it again before it gets too boggy. Feel free to join me if you want...it's a wicked ride with some tough climbs, little challenges and good descents, from flowy, rocky, gnarly, drops, jumps...it's wicked!
