FATMAP difficulty grade
Determined riders might just about ride the bridleway that leads around the side of Lattrig at the start of this ride, but from here it's a long push or carry uphill which will take most mortals at least 2 hours.
The views from the top are stunning though and once you've recovered from the uphill slog, it's a fast and crazy descent back to Keswick, retracing your steps from the climb.
Steep, rocky, rutted, loose, gnarly, uncontrollably fast and at times scary, adrenaline levels will be peaking if you can manage to stay on all the way down! This is not a ride to do on a busy summer weekend, when you'll be sharing the path with hundreds of walkers.
