Around Attermire

When we completed this circuit around Langcliffe Scar and Attermire six months ago, much of the route was an unnerving test of balance although in places the bikes stood upright with no support other than the snow freezing around the wheels as we rested behind stone walls...
...what a contrast: the soft light of a still, summer evening.
Climbing beneath Great Scar, steadily approaching the open moor... look down on the barns below and then out across Malham Tarn towards Kilnsey Moor.
A short rest by the junction of bridleways at the Grizedales...
...before a fast crossing of the moor... reach the caves above Langcliffe after which a final couple of miles on perfect gassy tracks before a last steep drop into Settle closes the circuit to end a beautiful summer evening.
