MTB Ride to Ribblehead Viaduct

A gloriously sunny day today, so thought I`d take a ride to the Ribblehead Viaduct and treat myself to an ice cream, (after all if you’re on a Fatbike there has to be some snow).

Distance: About 25 miles
Time: About 3.5 Hours
Apart from two long climbs most of the ride is fairly flat on good bridleways. Also there is one long sweeping descent and one fast steep windy descent to Burtersett.

Just took the usual route up through Burtersett to the Roman Road (Cam High Road) and then across to Cam Top and along the well prepared bridleway and onto the gravel road that the logging wagons use. This comes out eventually on the Ingleton Road and another mile or so to the Viaduct. Its a great straight fast descent down the gravel road as can be seen from the pictures, but its a long way backup. The Fatbike copes well with this smoother terrain, seems to just soak up the little stones and rolls over the smaller rocks.

A Walk up Inglebrough

Had walk up Inglebrough today. Set off from the Chapel le dale Church car park. The straight up the front of the mountain following the now mainly Stone flagged path. Very misty on top could not see any views, but on the way down having followed the ridge round the mist did clear a bit to get a view of the Ribblehead Viaduct. Then back past the Hill Inn for a swift pint. Great pub for walkers and bikers!!
