The HowgillsA challenging ride through a quiet corner of the Dales, taking you along the side of the Howgills and past Holme Open Farm. You also pass Fox’s Pulpit where George Fox, a Quaker, preached in the open air to over a 1000 people in 1652.
This short route contains a few challenging climbs but the reward is the fantastic view of the Howgills and Lune Valley. Starting in the lovely market town of Sedbergh the route takes you along Howgill Lane which runs along the side of the rounded sides of the Howgill fells. You then pass under the impressive Lowgill viaduct before taking on the tough climb up Firbank Fell. Take care on the descent. An easier flat section takes you back to Sedbergh past Holme Open Farm.
