MTB Ride – Mallerstang “The Thrang” Loop

Route description with video of Mountain Bike Loop ride from Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales.GPX of route

Distance: Approx 24 miles
Time: About 3.5 Hours
Some good climbing and two long descents. Bridleway disappears at one point.
Make sure you have a Map, Compass or a good GPS with map.

The loop I did, started from Hawes and headed out of Town on the Sedbergh road past Cotterdale, before turning right towards Kirby Stephen at the Moorcock Inn. Then after a couple of miles riding along side the railway line, turning off the road at Shaw Paddock Farm following the bridleway, it’s just before the road goes under the railway line.
