- Calderdale day out ?
Never ridden the area so fancy booking a day off work and driving the 2hrs or so to Hebden and cracking out a 20-25 miler. Rocky or fast and flowy, I don’t mind. Normally ride in the Peak so not averse to 3/4000 ft of climbing. Got my OS map and can see a whole range of options from mbr, flat tyres website and even good old single track magazine. I appreciate the best stuff is probably cheeky and needs a local but I’m happy to stick with the well known. Hebden / Todmorden loop seems to be popular from Heatmaps but looking for recommendations really. ThanksPosted 8 months agowlMember
Enjoy yourself. If you’re riding the good stuff and staying off tarmac and dirt roads, it’s pretty slow going – just allow for that. I was out for almost 6 hours on Monday and probably only covered around 30+ miles and 1,500m climbing. It was hot and windy tho, and gloopy in places. Loads to go at – whatever you want really. I’d offer to show you round but too much work on. Stoodley, Gaddings, Widdop, Hurstwood, Stairs Lane, House of Shit and Ogden Res are good landmarks – string them all together (not in that order) for a big and rewarding day out. Cheeky stuff everywhere.Posted 8 months agowhatyadoinsuckaMember
A favourite has to be this
As with the peaks allow extra time, depending on breakdowns weather and big climbs rides can take alot longer than expectedPosted 8 months ago
