    My happy place. The descent of Barbondale heading South West toward Barbon has to be one of the most beautiful in the country. It's a tough climb from Gawthrop, but worth it!

    Beautiful road, not to be missed. We did it in less than perfect conditions and it is definitely something special. In the sun? My kind of heaven.

  • Cycling Jonesy

    Probably the most beautiful place in England to ride a bike. The scenery, the road surface, good climbs, fast descents, the sounds of the river, it adds up to perfection

    Climbing steeply out of Dentdale, this quiet valley has a remote feel. The road is of good quality & the views are great.
