Horsehead Moor


A sunday ride with the boggies. Pretty nice weather with only one brief downpour.

Second climb of the day towards Horse Head (605m)..

Route was from Horton in Ribblesdale, round the side of Pen-y-Ghent on Foxup Moor, down to Halton Gill then up to Horse Head. Here it was down into Langstrothdale before the ‘push’ up to Firth Fell at 607m and a downhill to Littondale. More relaxed biking followed past Dawson Close and Dale Head.

Tracks on the way  back towards Dawson Close.

Job done in 6hrs (37km, 1286m ascent) with at least an hour spent pushing our bikes :O
