This is an excellent route with adequate signs. West to East signs are better than East to West, the 'stickers' on the posts can be a difficult spot but the metal direction signs are brilliant. There should be a .gpx file available for people to...More

I cycled from Darlington across the Pennines and met my party at Hornby so missed the first 15 miles out of Morecombe. It was narrow undulating lanes back eastwards through Clapham where you start to come back into the hills. Nice run on minor roads...More

My husband and I completed the ride in 3 days. It is a fabulous route with stunning scenery and well signposted. I would recommend a reasonable level of fitness as there are a few steep climbs during the ride. We actually cycled from our home,...More
