:: Date: Sunday 15th sept
:: Distance/time: 16ish Miles with shortcut options/approx 5hrs including stops.
:: Meeting at: 10:00am onwards, ride starts at 10:30am Lower Greenfoot Lane Car Park, Settle BD24 9RW
:: Directions: click here for start location
:: Terrain: 85% off road, mainly well surfaced but expect some mud in places. 1400ft of climbing, drove roads, shooting tracks and some technical singletrack.

The ride starts with 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).
Then a brake burning descent into Malham Village for a hearty pub lunch and ales, followed by a short walk to Malham Cove. The return leg will see us saddling up again for the big climb up onto the Pennine Bridleway 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.

Here's a link to the last few aftermaths.... 2013 ... 2011 ... 2011

Re:

Enjoy the ride boys and girls :LOL:

My cast is coming off on the 26th of September, I have been riding the bike on the turbo, so it shouldn't take long to get back on it :facepalm:

Probably need to take it easy, nothing stupid downhill :shock: to begin with!

Stuart.
