Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
If you follow the Cam High Road all the way to Bainbridge it's a tough descent on a gravel bike, even on fat tires. I reckon it would be a walk to come up it. Once you're up there's a mix of grass, tarmac and different grades of gravel and it's all rideable and great fun on a gravel bike all the way to Ribblehead. The cafe in Bainbridge does an awesome breakfast and good coffee and cake, we checked!

A dead straight ancient roman road that's best tackled on a gravel or MTB. From Bainbridge the ascent is very rocky, smoother on the descent to Ribbleshead Viaduct. The views are second to none from up here, especially on a clear day you can see for miles!

A mountain bike, gravel or cross bike will be needed for this terrain. A rocky long but steady climb all the way to the top. The photos don't do it justice. This was an old Roman road according to Emma!

The descent is ok to halfway for a gravel bike, after which even fat tyres will be a struggle. There is a bridleway signed to the right. It is a grassy way, lumpy but gives way to outstanding views into Raydale & Semer Water. Best done in dry conditions. There is a highlight already in place for this diversion. This combination of Roman Road and grass descent is highly recommended!
