Hi i bought a book containing a lot of routes around the dark peak area.

Most of the routes including are red / black.

I am a complete newbie but i am pretty fit.

Are they red / black due to the difficulty technically or physically.

I quite like the look of the kinder circuit from edale

Are these route going to be beyond my capabilities?


  • Hey,
    I'm a total newbie and i've managed to do red/blue rides in the peak. I did go with someone more technically adept than me, but i managed to get down them all! i think Blacka moor is a good start, as is the Stanage Pole one. Acuatlly - Langsett Resevoir is very easy.

    Anyway just use your head and if you don't like it, get off!
