Thread: Peak off road ride?

  1. #1

    Peak off road ride?

    Just seeing if anyone fancies a bash on the trails around the peaks? Bakewell/Matlock area

    I will be available in about a month

    I know plenty of tracks to make a run for a couple of hours, smaller bikes would be better!

    I can't do mid week at the moment but I'm expecting that to change in the near future.

    I could make an easy route for you, gpx the file and send it you, but I was thinking of more aggressive bikes for this ride out

    I only have my 1150 - and it has to take me to work afterwards too - so I can't afford to drop it.

    What is an 'aggressive bike' ?

    An 'aggressive bike' in my opinion is one which was primarily designed for off road

    Oh, OK. This GPX file - what do I do with it, please? I am sure Lee will help me out if it is too techy for me. I am an old git who struggles with modern stuff like mobile phones and gadgets.

    Have you got a garmin?

    If you own one you can load it on via a pc or Mac to the device

    It will then be viewable as a track to follow in either direction depending where you are.

    Where are you based? I haven't made a track but can throw something together depending on location

    Right so is anyone available next week for a greenlane ride out?

    I'm flexible on the day but needs to be Tuesday onwards and I prefer the early morning!

    Sorry - only just seen the reply.
    Yes I have a Garmin, but I have never plugged it into the computer - Lee did, and it all went haywire and he then spent a couple of hours trying to untangle it (NOT MY DOING FOR A CHANGE!!)

    I know how to put a post code into it, that is as far as I have got, I don't know how to use any other part of it's capability.

    I was hoping to go and explore up around the Back of Ecton tomorrow, it is close to family farming country, but I have never seen it. Apparently there is a tunnel under the road up there somewhere. I did go to the Wetton Mill cafe once, we stumbled on it by accident, but I haven't been able to find it again because I don't actually know where we were! I have fishing on the upper Dove and I was looking to go and find it and have a dabble, but it is all 'unknown territory'. I have the White Peak OS liesure map out at the moment (4cm to 1km), trying to work out where our fishing is and how to get there.

    I would love for someone to show me the lanes in that area one day. I enjoyed my day with Skygod, but have no idea where we were, I can't remember the name of the town we started from!

    I go out fairly often so your welcome to tag along. Would you be able to meet me at say chatsworth estate? Depending on speed and breaks my loop takes about 2-3 hours from there and will finish up near Hathersage
