Starting at the Shepherds Rest Inn this mountain bike route takes in all the hills above Todmorden which has a unique 3 sided valley. The route starts with some great off road terrain in the form of the Pennine Bridleway and the first climb features Calderdale Off Road Climb 14. The route continues on an old pack-horse trail before sharply descending to the village of Walsden. At this point comes the biggest challenge on the ride in the form of Calderdale Off Road Climb 19, a mix of steep road and technical terrain up to the areas trig point. The next section on Limers Gate offers a fast fire road before linking into the regeneration project of Flower Scar Rd and the country road descent to Cornholme. Some challenging tarmac lies ahead before you enter some of the best natural mountain biking in the area and a technical descent to the valley floor. It’s uphill back to the start from here with one more installment of Pennine Bridleway descent.
