    Joseph Cowell | 21/12/2016 11:25:00

    Joseph Cowell | 07/10/2016 16:10:00

    I've just completed the 2016 3 Peaks Cyclocross; it was hard, but in a very unique way. I’m familiar with tired legs, but this was different.

    Parkamoor and the Three Witches

    Velo Bikes Grizedale | 21/06/2016 11:44:00

    The Parkamoor and the Three Witches loop is a Grizedale classic. It can be added into other Grizedale loops to make a longer ride or done on it’s own. It’s one of those routes that delivers a little taste of everything the South Lakes has to offer in a mountain bike ride. Open fells, awesome views, twisty woodland single track.... More
