PINDALE TO THE MONSAL TRAIL

Technical Challenge : 2 of 5

Physical Challenge : 3 of 5

Typical route:

Distance : 23 miles

Climbing : 3k ft

 

For beginners this full route is more suited to ebikes due to the level of climbing involved, although shorter variations can be made made for normal bikes. Starting in Hope and traversing bridleways, gravel tracks and country lanes until you reach the Monsal trail (but we don't ride on it!) this stunner of a route is a fantastic introduction to differing surface types and getting 'out there' without facing anything overly technical
