Jennride is a self supported, off-road bikepacking route in memory of Jenn Hill. We didn’t know Jenn, but her reputation precedes her and it sounds like a big bike ride with like minded people is a very fitting tribute.
We turned up a bit out of shape. Bikes, still in last seasons cross country racing guise, were strapped with bags and transformed into bikepacking steeds. The forecast was good, so we packed light and bimbled out of Staveley just before the mass start, mainly because we didn’t realise there was one and were itching to get going, all available pocket space filled with prototype Cherry Bakewell and Choc Kendal Mint Cake energy bars.
