Pennine Bridleway is a guidebook to this National Trail taking you on a multi-day off-road cycling adventure from Derbyshire through the Yorkshire Dales to Cumbria, following the Pennine Hills.
This big ride is split into four sections; each section includes detailed directions as well as information on points of interest along the route, bringing the history and landscape of the trail into context. There are also three loops, including the Mary Towneley Loop, which can be tackled separately or as part of the main trail. The guidebook is illustrated throughout with stunning action photography by professional photographer Joolze Dymond.
Researched, ridden and written by mountain biking expert and freelance writer Hannah Collingridge, this guidebook features clear and easy to use Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 maps, easy-to-follow directions, details of distance, ascent and difficulty gradings, bikepacking hints and tips and local knowledge. There is also a comprehensive Introduction and a detailed Appendix, and a link to downloadable GPX files.
Hannah Collingridge has been riding bikes, not very far and not very fast, for over forty years, nosying at things of interest on the way. With a background in history, archaeology, landscape studies and language, it might be rocks, lumps in a field, place names, or industrial remains that take her fancy. Or on a really good day out, all of them. She’s at her best when she’s somewhere new pointing excitedly at something she’s read about.

‘This pocket-sized book documents the big ride – split into four sections: each section including detailed directions, stunning photography, as well as information on points of interest along the route – bringing the history and landscape of the trail to life.’ – Tim Wiggins, Life in the Saddle
‘You could easily navigate the entire route quite successfully using only this book with no electronic devices or additional maps, which must surely be a measure of how good any guidebook is. Whether you’re planning to ride the route in its entirety, as a series of day rides or simply fancy a little exploring, then it’ll be a worthwhile addition to your bookshelf.’ – Bear Bones Bikepacking
‘And though the excitement of discovering things for ourselves is one that extends from childhood, through adulthood, when time comes, a helping hand surely never went amiss? The helping hand, in this case, comes courtesy of author Hannah Collingridge. A cyclist for more than forty years, with a background in history, archaeology, landscape studies and language, it's hard to think of a better guide to take you from start to finish.’ – Brian Palmer, The Washing Machine Post
