Start from Showground Carpark Pateley Bridge Harrogate N Yorkshire HG3 5BD

This 25 mile cross-country route takes you far from the town and villages and up onto the remote moors and the high peak of Greenhow Hill. 

Reaching right onto the edge of Barden Fell and offering dramatic views out into wharfedale this route then returns back into Nidderdale with a fast descent through a landscape shaped by the industrial heritage of the valley before finishing on a scenic but still gruelling loop of Gouthwaite Reservoir.  

It is one of the more extreme routes in Nidderdale, with 25% climbs, vaguely defined and sometimes boggy moorland bridleways and exposed hilltop tracks. 

This route is not one for deepest winter or early spring solo rides and gets pretty far from civilisation, it includes cat 3 & 4 climbs, but makes a great training ride, and can be combined with the Tour of Nidderdale to create an epic 50+ mile ride.
