This is a great little ride which is basically a figure of 8 around Askham Fell. Park at the village hall and outdoor swimming pool, there is an honesty box for a contribution. Leave the car park and turn left onto the main road. You will soon reach Helton taking the next right and then right again to begin the climb. It is steep at the start but soon levels off after a cattle grid and the view soon opens up!
Ride the well marked track until you see a well marked track heading off to the left. This track is undulating with a nice short sharp incline to keep you interested!
The climb is a good one and will certainly get your heart pumping! As you top out the trail flattens before you reach your outward leg. Take the bridleway to your left climbing and heading towards a walled coppice. At the coppice turn right to take the fast grassy descent towards Askham.
