Ride around Inglebrough

Found a local ride listed in an old edition of MBUK (340) on Viewranger which was a circular route of Inglebrough, so I thought why now give it a go.

Now due to issues with a change of car I could not not use my roof rack and my bike would not fit my old rear rack, so I had to get a lift over to Ribblehead. Thus the ride I did is not exactly the same as the ride in the magazine, .gpx included. I had to start from Ingleborough but then instead of doing a circular route I had to ride back to Hawes.

Distance: 27.75 miles
Time: 3 to 4 hours
Provides great views of the 3 Peaks of Yorkshire. The riding isn’t too technical but offers a good variation of climbs and descents. Both on and off road.

This loop is supposed to start at the car park in Ingleton but as mentioned I did not take that option, instead I started about half way around the loop about a mile past Selside on the B6479 at a layby. As you can also see from the photos the glourios hot weather we have been having seems to have turned into a damp and misty day but hey thats what windproofs and waterproofs are for.

MTB – above Burtersett in the first Snow of the Year

First time the weather’s been good enough to enjoy a ride today, although the ride up the road above Burtersett to the Roman Road Bridleway way spent on the verges as the road was sheet ice for a quarter mile. Still brilliant to get out and away from the last several weeks wild winds and rain. Mind you it felt like -10 with the windchill on the top.

MTB – Video Short XC Loop – Hawes/Roman Road/Burtersett
