I live 10 miles away (round trip of 20) and been riding Gisburn for 20 years, it has some loverly bits and all credit to the volunteers, as above I like the climby bits as some are really excellent. Hully Gully and whelpstone done and not my personal fav, homebake with the bad step and the new chicken run are wonderful, hope is fun and do able swoopy is cool and the blue is silly grin inducing.
Lots for riders to do and better than llangeda.
What I dislike is the van driving idiots speeding to get there with no respect for cyclists,
would I drive from the midlands no but I would rather ride in the lakes or yorkshite dales but it is a good day out
