Norwood Edge (OC-53)

Otley, Yorkshire, England

Loop - Hilly - New

It's a blustery, overcast day in Otley. Can you make it around this 26Km loop before the rain arrives? After cresting Norwood Edge (Official Climbs #53), look out for the white golfball-like radar domes at RAF Menwith Hill, an extensive satellite ground station serving as a communications intercept and missile warning site for the UK MoD and the US DoD. Rest your legs on the fast descent to the shores of Swinsty Reservoir before beginning the long, steep climb to the ride's summit on Askwith Moor.
