Route Info

Sedbergh is always a popular heading off points for rides with a great range of accommodation, shops and cafes available. This is a relatively short road route with one steep climb. You leave Sedbergh and quickly pick up some lovely quiet roads signed as cycle routes which take you into Dentdale.

When you reach the hamlet of Gawthorp you turn right and then it is up the tough climb to take you towards Barbondale. From the top it is it a lovely descent down the valley to reach the picturesque village of Barbon with a great café. More quiet lanes take you back to Sedbergh with one short section on the A road where you need more care.
