Mallards Pike Loop #2

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

A non-technical, but demanding, 9 mile circuit with a good mix of singletrack and fire-roads. Suitable for most times of the year (except after very wet weather). The area around Mallards Pike is renowned for its Bluebells, making this a fantastic ride to do in late April/May. Some tough climbs and a couple of very fast downhill sections.

Summary:
A non-technical, but demanding, 9 mile circuit with a good mix of singletrack and fire-roads. Suitable for most times of the year (except after very wet weather), but the area around Mallards Pike is renowned for its Bluebells, making this a fantastic ride to do in late April/May.

Some tough climbs and a couple of very fast downhill sections.

Recommended Route:
Starts with a difficult climb out of Parkend past the radio masts. Pass near New Fancy viewpoint and on towards Lightmoor, where you pick up a singletrack known locally as the 'Dog Walk'. This leads to the start of fairly tough but picturesque climb, up the northern face of Staple-Edge Hill. The long climb to the top is rewarded with straight, and very fast, downhill to the entrance of Mallards Pike car park. A few miles, and a couple of road crossings later, you’ll eventually pick up a singletrack leading to a tough climb, then another fast downhill, back to Parkend.
