Tips

  • Timothy Pulleyn

    If you're not familiar with this back road I'd strongly recommend it! A narrow single lane from Bolton Abbey through to Ilkley, beautiful scenery and great winding roads all the way down.

  • Ned

    Avoid during rush hour as used by traffic as a rat run to skirt around ilkley traffic

  • Pat

    This road is much busier now so take care

    Please remember this is used for residents to access property and livestock. It isn’t just for cyclists! Though you might think so....best to be polite to locals!

    Turn off this road and go through Langbar, a good stiff climb up to the village and then a superb run down through Middleton. The climb peaks at about 20%
