RockyDave and I (plus mates) mountain biked this route in May, and you are dead right. Our route was the 157 mile route around the Dales. Google "Follow the Ram" bike route. Absolutely brilliant, remote and spectacular....all I kept saying to Dave was "I wish I was in the Z""!! It's totally driveable and hardly any cars, so planing to take Mrs KF around the route in the Z with a night stop at a really nice B&B in Ingleton. :thumb:

Thats my favourite road ever. Often take it in during cruises i have run in the past. Last one i remember telling everyone i was off at high speed and would wait for them at Ribblehead. Fun!!
