Each of the routes includes the well known local landmark of Blackstone Edge.

Bronze Route- 22 mile ride

This route leaves Hollingworth Lake and heads towards Halifax, climbing Blackstone Edge. There is a resting / water point at the White House public house after which the route turns left across the moors and descends into Mytholmroyd via Cragg Vale returning to Hollingworth Lake via Hebden Bridge and Todmorden.

Silver Route  - 29 mile ride
Following the Bronze Route to the top of Blackstone Edge and The White House water stop, this route crosses the East Lancashire/ West Yorkshire Moors, through part of the Calder Valley to Hebden Bridge. From there the route returns to Hollingworth Lake via Todmorden.

Gold Route  - 52 mile ride

This route includes the longest continuous on road hill climb in England. The ride follows the Bronze and Silver routes to the White House and the top of Blackstone Edge. From there the route crosses the East Lancashire/ West Yorkshire moors, through part of the Calder Valley to Hebden Bridge. The route then heads up Heptonstall Hill, takes in the high road to Burnley, and eventually descends into Todmorden and back to Hollingworth Lake.

Each of the routes will be clearly signposted and marshalled on the day through the Trans-Pennine Cycling Club. There will be water/ refreshment stops at The White House and in Hebden Bridge and Todmorden
