Of course:

Top of Pindale

Looking back up Pindale

It's a great downhill well worth doing if you start from Peak Forest but it's a tough climb. :idea:

p.s. don't look at the rocks in the background and figure it for smooth. Look at the ones Matt is avoiding on the single and extrapolate from there!

I managed to recover a raw video clip from an old backup CD and re-convert it for you:

Pindale Helmet Cam
(Knew I had it somewhere!). :angel:

Most are on the site's main video page already. I'll have a look and see if I can find any which haven't been seen recently, the whole lot are saved on DVDs as two single clips of 4.4Gig! :shock:

It's probably in a bit worse state these days - once you get to the bit that looks like a Blake's 7 set then you're laughing - although the road under the trees at the end has deteriorated more as well and could make for a nasty surprise to anyone who thinks they've finished there smile.gif

I'm not sure if going down this way is preferable to going down Cavedale or not - the lead up to Cavedale is really nice. The trouble with Cavedale I guess is that unless it's in summer after a drought, it's either a partial waterfall or a dangerous ice-rink. I've never seen anyone ride down that top bit with any degree of success.

I prefer Pindale although some 'cheeky' lines can be had in Cavedale too. :whome:

The top of Pindale had had a recent resurface before that video was shot. The lads got away from me a bit because I was still expecting it to turn in to it's old pothles and lumps nightmare but the resurfacing went all the way to the quarry part. :doh:

Doubtless by now the MX crowd have revealed some of that lumpy bedrock again as it's all underneath there and going nowhere. 8)

I remember that one from a couple of months back. Rode it with Moohak and NickB.

The run in was more of a drop in. I think Moohak cleaned the descent but I had an over the bars moment after the first bend.

It is very loose and rocky. Great fun.

It's downhill all the way.....

They had put a lot of hardcore on that top section but it's way too steep to have lasted long and soon turned in to a nice deep and steep ditch! :twisted: Serves them right for trying to make a road out of it. Hopefully the whole section is almost back to the lovely, lumpy bedrock by now and has re-earned it's MTB Britain christening: 'Dentist's Grade'.
