5 quite hard climbs
Some undulating terrain to the base of Holme Moss. The climb up Holme Moss is very hard but an excellent descent which can reach speeds of up to 50mph. More undulating climbing after a short section of main road ending in Glossop where there is a cyclist cafe. From there there is a long challenging ascent up the Snake Road. The descent is a bit undulating ending at Ladybower Dam. Another ascent to a left turn taking you onto the Strines. Short distance gets you to the Strines Inn which is a good place for refreshments. Follows is a series of tough short descents and hill climbs culminating in a very tough ascent. Some more undulating terrain takes you to Dunford Bridge and the car park.

We rode snake pass 1st then onto Holme Moss. Going the Snake pass east to west is quite easy, but then you have the Home Moss climb west to east which is difficult.

Whichever way you go you will have a tough West-east climb. Then we had to climb out of Holmfirth towards Crow Edge which is very tuff in itself and we forgot to account for (Struggling by the top of that with 10 miles left to go back to Strines). A very challenging ride, but thoroughly enjoyable in the sunny weather last weekend.
