Kepwick MTB ride - 7th November

Posted by Dave Thompson on 2021-11-15

A minor cold pandemic reduced our numbers drastically, leaving four male bikers to enjoy a windy but beautiful autumn day out. Kepwick bank is always a good warm up but great views over to the Dales is always a decent reward. We picked up the Paradise trail for a short distance before making the most of a bit of single track and some fire break trails in Boltby Forest. Coffee break at high Paradise was followed by a quick blast along the road to Sutton Bank and several loops around the bike trail & pump loop. Lunch was taken on the picnic tables at the visitor centre before rejoining the Paradise trail along the escarpment back to High Paradise. A bit of a techy descent to Brickhouse followed by a short section of road back to the cars. A really enjoyable day out with lots of banter, two E bikes, a hard tail and a full suss. What a mixture, from the sublime to the ridiculous, a state of the art blue tooth dropper post to a bike with rim brakes ! ! ! No matter they all did the job and we had a trouble free ride.
