New Peaks descent near Mellor
Found a new Peak District descent to put into the list. I think it ranks between 7 and 8. (Yes, this blog has now got disorganised and needs restarting.....) It descends off Mellor Moor (SJ985874) to The Banks (SJ979874). It starts off steep and loose, then gains steps, then is steep, narrow loose and steppy all at the same time. With some corners thrown in. Get relaxed about what your back wheel is doing and for 2 minutes you could be in the Alps!
