Tips

  • Jonathan - MTB Derbyshire

    A top tip here is never to ride up it unless you really, really have to! But ridden downhill, this is always a grin inducer. Some hate the feeling of squirming over the spherical rocks and it can be unnerving feeling the spherical rocks (the potatoes in the name) squirm under your tyre, but if you relax and let the bike move under you it's brilliant. It's also worth noting that it is practically a river in wet weather. Also watch out for the bunny hop opportunity just before you join the tarmac.

    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.

    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.

    Awesome decent that’s both techie and fun. There can be a bit of a wet patch at the bottom after heavy rain.
