Distances: 75 km
Difficulty: Difficult terrain with longer, steeper hills

Explore some the beautiful scenery of the Ribble Valley and Bowland fells with a ride mixing paved roads, fire roads and single-track trails. One of our favourite gravel rides in the north of England, this ride is packed with amazing views and a wide variety of terrain.

The route starts in the small town of Slaidburn. It starts with some quiet lanes before hitting the highlight being towards the end of the route, Salter Fell Road, which follows most of the route of the old Roman Road. It’s a challenging gravel climb that will reward you with spectacular views in all directions before getting a coffee stop in Wray.

We then ride on quiet country lanes and then venture into the Gisburn Forest, which has a few technically easy (blue graded) single track sections before returning to Slaidburn. A glorious 75km loop.
