This great short route enjoys some wonderful parts of the area, which will surprise those who don’t know it well.

As always we’ve worked hard to avoid busy roads and built up areas. We’ve managed to find lovely little twisting lanes through fields and villages.

Not too hilly but some lumps on the way of course! Around the middle, we crest over 100m above sea level but are rewarded with a lovely flowing descent towards Thurnscoe.

An anti-clockwise loop just breaking the 50km barrier, important for your Strava stats!

A great morning out in aid of a worthy cause. One not to miss!
