MTB Up and around Greets

Yesterday I took another ride from Hawes to the Moors above Askrigg and around Woodhall Greets.

The ride takes in a fair percentage of road work including one steep climb up alongside Arn Gill, but it all pays off with some great views looking down Wensleydale and a long descent towards Woodhall. After all what goes up must come down.

Distance: 18 miles
Time: Approx 2.5 hours
Long Step climb on the road above Askrigg and then a great offroad descent towards Woodhall

From Stage1cycles in Hawes come out of the car park and turn left towards Bainbridge (A684). Bainbridge is approximately 4 miles, in Bainbridge at the T-Junction turn left towards Askrigg. Right at the next junction then on a miles or so to Askrigg. Head up the hill in Askrigg and then take the turn to the left on the tight right bend. From here the road begins a long steep climb bearing right at the next junction and keeps climbing before a small welcome bit of downhill on the road. Then its back to climbing for another couple of miles.

As the road nears the top of the hill look out for a Bridleway sign on the right-hand side of the road. Stop here and catch your breath, now for some off road through the peat and heather.
