RIDE OVERVIEW One of the best gravel loops in England taking in two iconic sections - the Pennine Way and the ancient Salter Fell Road. This is a very wild ride with parts a long way from a paved road. The views throughout are spectacular as we take in the Forest of Bowland & Yorkshire Dales. A northern classic.DISTANCE: 103KM | ELEVATION: 2126M RIDE DIFFICULTY 4.5/5 TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY 4/5 PERCENTAGE OF ROUTE OFF ROAD 50%Bike & Tyre Choice: The route is 50% on quiet lanes and 50% on more technical gravel & off road tracks. It is designed for gravel bikes, we suggest 40mm or wider tyres. A mountain bike will be fine on the off road sections but obviously slower on the 50km of tarmac. Road bikes are not suitable.
