We hope to welcome festival regulars back to the South Pennines and encourage new visitors to the fantastic landscape of the South Pennines. If you would like to visit the South Pennines before the festival please have a look at the amazing range of routes for the walker, cyclist and rider on our  Walk and Ride Website.

The following videos provide a taster of what the South Pennines has to offer to the cyclist on and around the Pennine Bridleway.

An inspiring film from Rochdale shows how all our partners are actively inspiring you to get on your bike and join us

Coverage of the Yorkshire Grand Depart of the Tour de France 2014 sent images of the South Pennines around the world. The second stage of the race provided a fantastic showcase for the South Pennines. The Walk & Ride Festival provides the ideal opportunity to explore the route of the race and the South Pennines more widely.

New to the South Pennines?

The South Pennines is a wild, wonderful and occasionally wuthering landscape at the place where Yorkshire and Lancashire collide. A land of steep-sided valleys, heather-covered moorland, canals, reservoirs and packhorse trails. The people who live here describe it as 'spectacular', 'inspiring', 'breathtaking' and 'dramatic.' It's a place where you'll find intense local pride - people who are passionate about the area and want to share what they know. Did you know we have the kilometre square with the densest network of public paths in England? We also have the most access land of anywhere in England outside a National Park AND the longest continuous uphill road climb (and descent too of course) out of Cragg Vale towards Littleborough. Amazing eh?

You'll discover much more about the South Pennine places, people and pastimes on the South Pennines website.
