I don't cycle, but have walked a fair amount of the TPT with/ my dog, its great to know that you won't have to worry about any cars and motor bikes. The terrain is varied and passes through woodland, golf courses etc.

The Trans Pennine runs from the east to west coast. Linking up with numerous other tracks and is part of the national cycle path. Choose your distance and enjoy a traffic free ride. It's brilliant. Finally lottery money well spent.

This is the best way to cycle this route, as others have said it is slightly uphill this way but makes it much easier on the way back. Have cycled this route many times and never tire of the route.Once past Penistone the route becomes...More
