NE&YORKS in association with the NWA proudly present a ride for February.
SATURDAY 19TH FEBRUARY
START: Lower Greenfoot Lane Car Park, Settle BD24 9RB
TIME: Meet for breakfasts from 8am onwards, ride starts at 10:30 sharp.
DISTANCE: 21 Miles with shortcut options
85% off road, mainly well surfaced but expect some mud in places. 1400ft of climbing, drove roads, shooting tracks and some technical singletrack.
A big climb out of Settle and onto the new section of the Pennine Bridleway before heading off over Malham Moor toward the Tarn (the highest Lake in England). A brake burning descent into Malham Village for a hearty pub lunch and ales, followed by a short walk to Malham Cove, before saddling up again for the big climb up onto the Pennine Bridle again and the final descent down the fantastic Stockdale Lane into Settle.
Stunning Dales views all the way round with particularly good views of the mighty Three Peaks in the distance.
There is plenty of parking in Settle as well as a good few pubs and hotels for those wanting to make a weekend of it. There are also regular trains from Carlisle and Leeds for those who want to leave the car at home.
Please make sure your bike is in good fettle and you are dressed for all weathers. It is also strongly recommended that helmets are worn on this route as the rocks are very unforgiving!
