## BIG RIDE DISCLAIMER ##
Please note, our big rides are not for the feint hearted and they are really hilly, tough but ultimately enjoyable rides. We have a lunch stop but they are longer, hillier and slightly faster than our standard rides. If you’re unsure then please speak to us and come to a standard ride first. We’re not ones to be too specific about speed but ideally shouldn’t be much slower than around 12mph average around this sort of course, as otherwise they just take way too long. Thank you.
### RIDE SUMMARY ###
I gave Jon a choice of 3 old routes to pick from and he did you all the hour of choosing a Re-run of the thunder bridge ride.
Great choice it is too. The ever brilliant Isle of Skye features before you bridge over to Yorkshire and get to some brilliant climbs around Holmbridge / Hade edge.
By the time you hit the late really steep hill at Mount Road just outside Marsden, you will know you have been on a ride.
## NAVIGATION ##
If you have a GPS device, please download the route so that you can follow it.
Polite request to not ride off of the front if you either do not have the route or you have not studied it.
