The Scottish Highlands may be the spiritual home of Pipedream, but the English Lake District is still an amazing spot to ride. We take a loop into the mountains to one of the most remote valleys in the area, riding ancient trails and never-ending singletrack.

 is it too much to ask to kill the techno/dubstep from videos?

just give me the raw trail sounds, or at a bare minimum something that doesn't make me consider buying a ton of glow sticks and molly.

 Beautiful area with exceptional trails but the video was ruined with seriously mismatched audio that didn’t suit the terrain, riding or edit. I love the Lakes for riding but the soundtrack was enough to put me off the brand and the area. Spectacular fail guys!

 Avoiding the brand and the area is a bit too much, but I agree that the music ruined the video. Area looks great, would love to visit one day.

 Needed some old gadgie shouting at them about bells while waving a walking stick to be more realistic.

 Lovely scenery, trails, and bikes. Painful music.

 Its better on mute or have your finger over your speaker to muffle the “music”

 Try some Boards of Canada on the soundtrack next time - they're from Scotland, make their sound in completely remote places, and its not the only 'natural' sounding electronic out there - but its the only natural sounding electronic sound out there. Still, fun stuff ya go over there...

 @thenotoriousmic: I'm baised...BoC is daily rotation for me going on 25 (?) years now while dubstep, imho, is total garbage. Totally nuked the whole vibe of this video.

 THE most beautiful area of England in my opinion and I’m lucky to live just over an hour away

 My home county, in which I’ve not lived for 20 years. If the opportunity arose, I’d move back there in a heartbeat.

 Honestly mate. Don’t bother, all the trails have been vandalised by fix the fells and the place is a traffic jam 7 days a week.

 @thenotoriousmic: Yes the fix the fells are destroying a lot of the trails . Was up Hole Rake the other week and bags of stones were on the side of the trail .Still a lot of riding untouched by these vandals though. Need to be up early to beat the traffic. The riding up there is fantastic which a lot of it requires big balls .

 Followed the advice and kept sound off.
Came out as a very boring commercial to lure total noobs.
The only funny part they biked was a staircase, and the most interesting feature they hike-a-biked. What!?!

 What a horrific song choice

 Nice place for sure that I'd like to ride once. Resuming such a ride in 2 minutes is a bit frustrating though, and that horrible soundtrack finishes to ruin it. Shame...

 Great video! Its great that they could put the sounds of them making and assembling the bikes as a soundtrack!

 It really needed a thrash metal segment with close ups of dirt being flicked up in some corners.
