As it was damp today, Dan and I left the ropes and rack at the house and loaded up the bikes and headed up to Hawswater. Dan had biked a couple of sections up there before but wanted to try out some other lines. We hiked up from Mardale Head car park to Gatescarth Pass and rode down the other side to Sadgill. From here we retraced our steps for a great downhill finale! From the car park we went for a little warm down over to The Rigg and back. Loads of great single track routes there if your prepared to push up the hill a little.
