Hi Dan,
Did this route last weekend but started from Breightmet so same route from Rochdale. I take it you went anticlockwise from Littleborough to get the 5.5 mile flyer from Blackstone Edge Road lol - I'm sure i touched 40mph down that stretch ;-)
I love Calderdale - this is a very well worn route - a firm favourite! Got any more good routes?

I am going just North of Hebden Bridge to Bolton Abbey nr Skipton this weekend hopefully - taking car to Bolton Abbey then circular route Skipton - Cross Hills - Addingham - Bolton Abbey 30 mile or so - looks like fun too!

I'm planning this route for saturday morning. I was wondering once I get to littleboro do I go thru Todmerdon or the other way? Also is it mainly tarmac or is it mixed with plenty of dirt? any help would be appreciated. thanks joools.
