Bike ride over the moors

Wed. 21st April 2010.
        After yesterdays bike ride to ease us on to the saddle todays bike ride was much harder with some steep hills, long drags and rough terrain.The ride started and finished at our house  but between the start and finish  the ride climbed onto the moors into Yorkshire on the new Pennine Bridleway, followed the moors northwards then decended back into Lancashire down some very steep terrain. The views were far reaching as far as the Lancashire coast around  Blackpool (40 miles)

                                                            Heading for the moors
                        The start of the new Pennine Bridleway
                                    Pendle hill in the distance
                            Across the moors into Yorkshire

                       Heading towards the wild Boulsworth Hill
              Looking north into the Yorkshire dales around Pen-y-ghent
                                        Down into Thursden Valley
