    From the A57 near Ladybower, across the high peak, up towards Huddersfield.

    Fantastic backroad. Well surfaced to. Locally known as the "Oopnorthring"

    Try it.

    That's all.

    and at the northern end, you get to Penis Town (although the spell it differently)

    I use this as a route to get to a friend's place in Dewsbury after riding up through the Peak District - beats the M6 or M1

    Yes I know that route , haven't ridden that way in years but I recall some really nice twisties over the tops.......nice way to link a ride between the snake pass and woodhead - both fantastic routes.

    it was resurfaced the other year so its great now for non adventure bikes, although the psycholists have found it as well now so you need to dodge them a bit(or more accurately look out for the cars dodging the cycles)
