Ascent Trip Report

A south to north traverse of the Howgills by mountain bike. Or at least a mixture of riding and pushing. Started in Sedbergh and ascended via Winder, Arant Haw and Calders before reaching the summit of The Calf itself. The 7 km descent of Bowderdale is often rated as one of the very best singletrack routes in the country but you need greater skills and stamina than me to keep upright all the way! Returned to Sedbergh at valley level.
