I'm thinking of a nice loop to do on my CX bike.
I would like to do a loop from Baildon, up to St Ives, over t'moor to Widdop Resevoir, and then over the back to Burnley (all very nice riding)
However then it appears to be either of case of roading it back of Colne to Crosshills, and back along the canal, or following the Canal from Burnley, all the way round to Skipton and then back to Baildon.
Roughly how long would it take to ride the canal from Burnley to Skipton, and roughly how many miles is it?
Or am I missing some off road route back from Burnley ish area that would be more fun?
