Riding around Colne/Burnley?
As an ex local theres more than enough to keep you busy for days around Colne and Nelson.
Just after coldwell use the Boulesworth moor bridleway down into wycoller (tea and cake stop) and then the footpaths to Trawden are a good ride – I head up from Nelson and return along the Leeds/Liverpool canal – Single Speed is around 2 1/2 hours
The valley sides are very steep in and around Colne so any footpath is fair game.
Dont forget Hebden Bridge is just over the hill – about 10 miles away
Or you can ride up the roman road from Worsthorne over to Widdops res and up to Eygypt then down to Todmorden

If you drop me mail and let me know when you’re heading up (email in profile), then you’re more than welcome to join us. We always post up on here under Monday night pub rides. And we’re normally out Wednesday or Thursday night too.
As of next week, I’ll now be working in Burnley, so I’ll be wanting to do a bit of exploring over the other side myselfPosted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
There’s loads to go at.
All the stuff that plumber mentioned is just excellent.
Favourite loop at the mo is Gorple Road, Hurstwood, Cant Clough, PBW down to the Ram, up to Thieveley Pike, Cold Comfort Farm then back up under the wind farm.
That’ll teach you what your legs are for.
If anyone from the area fancies a very, very slow spin, drop me a line.Posted 4 years ago
Theres some really excellent urban (slum) riding around Burnley. I can show you around next time i’m up there if you’re free
Might be worth heading over to do the Bingley Bash – Highly recommended. Good afternoon ride and finish with a lovely curry

I agree with Plum, Pendle is best done as a nightride.
Also, don’t even try to get up there at Halloween as the police close the whole area off to keep the witches away. Seriously.
Best route (at night) is up the diagonal (left hand fork) cart track to the top, then follow the singletrack all the way down Ogden Clough.Posted 4 years ago
