FATMAP difficulty grade
From the car park in Patterdale, a quick road pedal takes you to Bridgend and a wide track rising steeply uphill to Boredale Hause.
Kudos to anyone who rides all the way up this! The trail becomes vague for a while here as it crosses a plateau before becoming good singletrack and a fast, swoopy descent, with a few tricky steep drops down to Martindale.
Quiet lanes lead around to Sandwick and the start of some great highly technical and challenging riding which undulates, at times steeply, around the Lakeshore back to Patterdale.
