Default Best Ride out routes for the Pennine Massive

Edited so it makes a bit of sense.

This thread is for routes that you ride that you'll think others will enjoy.
It doesn't have to go to any of the typical haunts, the idea is that this will be a place where folk can come and look and get suggestions for a route they haven't tried before.

Idea's to make it easy to navigate:

Where it covers
Google/Satnav link
Estimate on milage/time
Any highlights/photo's you have.

So here goes:

Slaidburn : Bridge loop
A and B roads
Watch for sheep, pheasants, the odd copper on the A65 and did I mention the sheep and pheasants Jubilee tower is good for a picture or 2.

Great idea, similar to bestbikingroads.com . Be helpful if people could include sat nav info.

Been out today, Cramlington - Military Road - A686 - A66 - Ullswater - Patterdale - Kirkstone Pass - The Struggle - Ambleside - Hardknott Pass - Duddon Valley - Millom - A595 - Kendal - Shap - Hartside - Military Road - home. Will try a write up sometime this week. Hartside was empty at half nine as seen by these photos.

bright and early mate!!

This is mine (sort of well known)

Heddon on the wall- Chollerford- A696- A68- Carter Bar- Jedburgh- Coldstream- Wooler- A1

Around 170 miles full of gastso's north of the border but very good run.
Rest stops at Chollerford, Otterburn and Jedburgh. Fuel (if needed) at Wooler.

Good run takes around 4 hours if having a rest stop.

Good little run especially this time of year, only 100 miles start to finish and should take you about 4 hours including a good stop for lunch.

A - Long Preston > B6478
B - Slaidburn > B6478
C - Caton via Trough of Bowland > A683 > A687
D - Ingleton > B6255
E - Hawes > A684 > B6259
F - Kirkby Stephen > A685 > A683
G - Sedbergh > A683
H - Devils Bridge, Kirkby Lonsdale

Petrol in Caton on the main road, services just past the turning for Ingleton on the A65, small independant (pricey) place in Hawes, in Kirkby Stephen if you turn right on the A685 and head north for a mile or so and 1 in Sedbergh cant miss it

Plenty of food stops for the fatties in Slaidburn, butty van down the trough, main place for bikers would be Hawes or wait until the end and the butty bar at the bridge

Similar to me, but the one I posted in the first one is a bit more interesting. Especially heading through towards lee will get your **** off the seat.

lol


Rivington Barn to Devils Bridge - Route #1




A - Rivington Barn
B - Belmont > A675
C - Hoghton > Samlesbury Bottoms > A677 > A59
D - Clayton-le-dale > B6245
E - Ribchester
F - Dunsop Bridge
G - Caton
H - Devils Bridge

If you want to take in the 2 meeting places heres 1 way of doing it. Just over 60 miles should take you about 2 hours(ish) without stopping as it is a bit stop/start around Ribchester way. Nice & twisty upto Dunsop bridge after that though
