A combination of working Saturday and Whinlatter Sunday have ruled me out, looks like its worth the effort though especially with good weather forecast.

You've had this brewing for a while I think...? :wink: :lol:

Reckon I'd be up for a go at it over two days, really not sure about one :? although it'd be a very cool thing to do setting off at sunrise on midsummer's day 8)
[/hippy]

Need to find a saddle I can actually get on with first though! :x

Ah well, if it's just 97... :lol:

I have begun wondering about a Brooks - on the Alibi though?! :shock:
[/tart]

I think it must pass within a few hundred yards at least - definitely a breakfast/dinner/tea stop if not an overnighter. Doesn't look like we're in the right place to make it the overnight stop though...

Hello my NW chums! Pete and me had a spin just over the boarder the other week and we both thought it'd be retro friendly. We thought it might be a good idea to ride this route mid week so those that work weekends could attend. If there's no interest in that I'm happy to organise a weekend ride on this route later in the year. Be a good 'un for a cross section meet.

I started a thread in the Yorks section and would value your opinion :wink:

Hope to catch you all soon. Edd.

The 47 mile loop - Mary Townley Loop / Pennine Bridleway take about 7.5 hours for fit MTBers I'm told. I'm fancying a go at it shortly!
