Horses and riders on the Pennine Bridleway

Cycling Routes

Please note that this section is an interim route aimed at cyclists - the route is not recommended for horse riders due to the nature of the roads that have had to be followed.  The final route for the National Trail at this point is still under negotiation and construction but once available a new mostly off-road line will be created for all Trail users.

A varied mountain bike route that starts on tracks from Clapham, to Austwick, Feizor and Wharfe then takes you out into the open country of limestone scars and pavements with views of Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent forming a wonderful backdrop. There are a few technical sections but for the most part the surfaces will not be too demanding on your mountain biking skills. Most of the climbing comes between 4 and 8 miles (Feizor to Crummack Dale); so there is a nice warm up section (not counting the short climb out of the Clapham Tunnels!) and a long generally downhill finish.
