As i'll be in t'area on Thursday and walking at the weekend, i'm going for a spin down to West Yorks, via the Forest of Bowland, for a few pies and a nice pub lunch in the heart of The Pennines. The morning section is 2.5 hours, so a swift start will be on the cards, as i like to get to the pub for midday.
I'd be happy to take a small group of riders to see the area if interested...
