There’s a sweet descent in the next dale which some say is the best in the Dales. Don’t fancy too much climbing? Try the loop round Pen-y-Ghent, one of Yorkshire’s three peaks. Feeling like a contender? Then man-up and head for Buckden Pike with a super steep climb out of Kettlewell followed by a massive near 500 meters of vertical goodness to whip down. Best way to end a big day out! Wherever you choose to ride you’re guaranteed good times espcially as this weekend is offered at mates rates. So come on Hit the Hills!
