Best bit of salter fell is that it feels remote. The riding itself is pretty boring lets face it

Never rode it so wouldn't no if it was boring but I am still running on road rubber so would only make it more challenging and fun slipping and sliding everywhere it did at the lanes up Buxton way. I keep saying ill order them but get so tangled up in choice it never happens and then there's nice weather and time to ride again so I can't resist but getting on and going . :) I may have a little ride out later to see if I can find it wen I finish work at 5

It is and the most challenging part is the climb up from the Slaidburn end but even then it's just because of the bits of old concrete, but it's still open and ridable for now so we have to make the best of what we have left :angry:

i stopped on that climb behind rederic as a rider was down in front of him, eric managed to get going again when it cleared but i was just rock-grinding and required a push to get moving again, boy was i glad i wasn't there alone. Its a lovely ride in a remote spot with proper signage and brand new metal gates.

You can ride alongside the bad bit with all the loose stones but were trying to stay on the 'good' bit :woohoo:

Well went in the garage today and did my wheel and glad I didn't have a puncture kit... would have needed an inner tube ... the tube was completely split in half and had a 2 inch slice down one side also my rim tape was demolished to think the tyre overheated as the tubed most have just blew up to split completely in half like that... lucky really was coming off the junction at m6 in Lancaster and thought the suspension had gone most have an angel looking over me ... :) well lesson learned always carry 2 tubes with me ...
