Ride report by Simeon Orme
I can’t remember if we started from Halton Station or not, as I am writing this ride report in 2015, as did get around to doing it 2007. So after meeting up up Peter and several miles later we call in at Inglesport Cafe for a brew before heading up Fell Lane the plan was to lock up the bikes part way up the track and then walk up to the summit but this did not happen as we continue pushing the bikes on up the track to the summit.
Its one of those routes that you do only once because its very steep push up to summit and you may do it again several years later when you forget how it was.
Once we got to summit of Ingleborough, we decided to taken easy way down by pushing our bikes along the footpath along the ridge to Little Ingleborough and then down to head of Clapdale before cutting across to Long Lane which followed down to Clapham where we stop at Cafe Anne which is no longer a cafe.
