Excellent route. It's certainly got plenty of climbing in it. Some of the climbs are seriously hard work with the Hebden Bridge 25% and Todmorden to Bacup climbs sticking in my mind as particularly tricky.

Fully recommended but it is a tough ride.

If I had any criticism, it'd be trawl right through the middle of Rochdale but I appreciate it's hard to find an alternative.
