    Start the Great North Trail from the train station in Winksworth, Derbyshire to head North. This way you’ll gradually get used to your set up and self-sufficiency before it gets too remote in the remote Scottish Highlands! It’s a simple first day following the well sign marked Pennine Bridleway, covering

  • I did the pennine bridle way to Kirkby Stephen 2 years ago ,

    it is more challenging than you probably think.

    I thought the climb up Cheadle from Blackwell was about as tough as it would get ,

    but I was wrong !!!


    There is some cracking descents though .


    Top Tip :-

    Make sure you BOOK your bike on the train
