Todmorden & Stoodley Pike

Littleborough Lake to Lake - Try a Trail (Full Route)
Criss-crossing the Yorkshire/Lancashire border this is a classic tough but scenic mountain bike route taking you from low lying farms to high up on the moors passing several reservoirs on the way. Choose from a 10 mile loop starting at Walsden or a 20 mile ride starting at Hollingworth Lake. The Summit pub at Summit lock is a good place for a break.
