I use it as a place to learn and practise drops and jumps.

Stile cop is pretty good for learning drops tbh, not so much jumps there's only a couple there

not so much an "action shot" as a "full stop!"

Now see, what appears to have happened there, is that you've left your reflectors on. :lol:

Ah Whinlatter, love it. Hard to pick a favourite final decent between the 2 loops, the South loop goes on and on and on and on and on but the adrenaline rush of doing the North loop final decent for the first time and going round the switchback only to see a sheer drop and cacking my pants as I was going too fast was funny as hell.

I agree! I think if I had to choose I would say I preferred the north descent slightly. Getting air off the rollers when there is a huge drop on the one side is quite an experience! The climb earlier on is a bit scary too-I wasnt paying attention and nearly lost my front wheel over the edge.
Out of all the trail centres ive done, Whinlatter is definitely one of the best.

Not my picture, but Winnat's Pass in Derbyshire peaks. Makes road riding fun (almost) and is the gateway to some amazing offroad rides at Edale:

Remember driving up Winnats Pass, some bugger on a road bike trying to get up it.

He failed.

A few recent pictures from the last few weeks.
A stag party (honestly!) on the coast.

A little exposed bit of singletrack on the coast.

Looking down on the next bit of the trail through the trees. (It's in B&W-ish but I want to return here and photograph this when the trees are all autumnal.)
