Detailed description

Another favourite ride beginning with a steady climb out of Accrington to Hambledon then a steep drop down to Clowbridge. Next a sharp climb up to Comptons Cross andf a slow descent down into Waterfoot. From here its a real climb up to the top of Cowpe. The ride levels out for a whil to catch your breath then a steady drop down to Edenfield. Back up towards Helmshore then back to start
