  3. and the isle of mann end2end doh!

  4. its signed all way round permanently so give money to charity and go another day(beware the gates!)sorted

  5. even tho its signposted you can still get lost on this challenge..
    we did it a few weeks back a group of us went with the pennine bridleways ranger so he took us round …. and thankgod for the van that met up with us periodically so we could top up our camelbaks and put those energy tablets in our water…. great day out.

  6. You can get a train to Rawtenstall, or you could get one to Rochdale or Todmorden and ride over the hill – which’ll add 8-10 miles to it…
