Helvellyn - Sticks Pass mountain bike route is in the Eastern Lake District is draged Hard/ Difficult and is 11.6 miles long. It starts from Glenridding (from the junction on the main road at the bridge over the river, by the corner shop). It climbs to the summit of Helvellyn via Glenridding Common before finishing with a descent of Sticks Pass. It’s a fantastic ‘proper’ mountain bike ride with lots of very technical descending, which is ample compensation for the sections of hike-a-biking.
