MTB – Video riding down the Roman Road

Just got access to a GoPro Hero 3 Camera, so I thought I`d take it down one of the routes that I do quite often. The ride is above Hawes/Burtersett on the Roman Road Bridleway. It starts off with a bit of the final climb and then goes onto riding back down the track towards the road from Burtersett.

MTB – Roman Road in the Snow

Thought I`d have a quick ride up the Roman Road above Burtersett on my Mountain Bike to see if there was any snow left and to come back over the top towards Semerwter.

Still thats Continue reading
