Mountain bike enthusiasts can explore the numerous bridleways and tracks over the fells. Sedbergh has, on its doorstep, one of the best mountain bike rides in the United Kingdom: the ridge route along the top of the Howgills from the Calf south to Arant Haw followed by the descent from Winder to Howgill Lane. This is a very tough undertaking as you are faced with a 1770 ft (540m) climb from Sedbergh via Birkhaw to the top, much of it a steep grassy push. A magnificent ride on a fine day.
Sedbergh Information Centre has can supply a range of maps and guidebooks related to cycling in the area.
More detailed information about cycling can be found at Sedbergh Gateway, a website for walkers and cyclists in Sedbergh and the western Yorkshire Dales.
