The Eastern Passes (Intermediate/advanced)
A big day out from Staveley in the South Lakes, taking in beautiful singletrack in the Kentmere valley, as well as the tough but rewarding climbs and descents of Gatesgarth and Nan Bield passes. This is a tough ride with a lot of Hike-a-bike climbs, and some loose and technical descending. but also some of the best natural trails in the UK.
An excellent level of fitness is important on this ride, and intermediate to advanced level riding skills.
