HARDKNOTT PASS

HIGHLIGHTS

We start the day with a discussion over a coffee on your own riding experience and any challenges you are having to get an understanding of where you are, and where you want to be.

Then we will hit the road on our planned training route through the Yorkshire Dales, we stay away from many of the busier roads to allow you to concentrate on your skills. Our standard training route (which we can change to accommodate individual circumstances) covers a wide mix of roads and landscapes, we will stop plenty of times to maintain an ongoing dialogue and adjust the training accordingly.

This is a nice, easy-paced day, we stick primarily to the back roads and avoid most of the roads where the traffic generally is.

After lunch, we ride along the shores of the Thirlmere, Derwent, and Grasmere lakes before tackling Langdale, Blea Tarn, Wrynose Pass, and Hardnott Pass where we pause to stretch our legs and have a walk around the ruins of the old Roman Hardnott Fort.

This training is not designed or oriented to speed, it will teach you about observation, positioning, cornering, and braking, above all it will teach you how to be safe and give you the skills necessary to get more enjoyment out of your motorcycle in a wide range of circumstances.

ROUTE

ITINERARY

After meeting for coffee to discuss what you want to achieve, we head off to the first of the passes, Kirskstone where we will pause as there are great views across Lake Windermere and to update on progress so far, this will be the theme of the day.

As we descend to follow the shore of Ullswater we stop to refuel the bikes if needed as this is around the 70-mile mark.

Next, we ascend Newlands Pass we ride narrow singletrack roads and head onto Honister Pass for our lunch stop and discussion on how you are doing so far.

After lunch, we ride along the shores of the Thirlmere, Derwent, and Grasmere lakes before tackling Langdale, Blea Tarn, Wrynose Pass, and Hardnott Pass where we pause to stretch our legs and have a walk around the ruins of the old Roman Hardnott Fort.

It's then a short ride down the dale before we cross Birker Fell and our return to Backbarrow.
