Route summary This ride packs it all in - open moorland crossings, cobbled roads, rough tracks, stunning views and more. Some sections suffer in the wet, though. Location details This area has lots of big, steep hills, rocky tracks and expanses of open moorland, and is riddled with superb trails of all descriptions, which provide plenty of hard, technical riding. It does get busy with tourists and suffer in the wet, though. Start/finish Ogden Water car park (grid SE 066/309, postcode HX2 8XZ). Getting there: The ride starts from Ogden Reservoir, west of Bradford. Join the A629 between Halifax and Keighley, and look out for the brown 'Ogden Water' signs, which will lead you to the visitor centre car park.
