    Very fun and famous Peaks descent. It's a giant rock garden, super loose rocks, fast and technical descent. Best way to describe it would be jacket potato sized rocks scattered across a rocky bridleway.

    Top tip here is never ride up it unless you really have to!!! Ridden down hill however this is always a grin inducer. Some hate the feeling of squirming over the spherical rocks and it can be unnerving however try to ride it relaxed.....let the bike run and have fun. Also worth noting is the fact that it is practically a river in any wet weather. Also watch out for the bunny hop opportunity just before you join the tarmac.

    This is a toughy. Not super technical but seemingly never ending. If you're looking to get a top segment time you'll have to be seriously pushing on and get ready for some tired hands.

    Remove your tubes at the top - they're going to pop anyway.
