Short morning or evening blast, nice corners and good straights, Grane Road can be busy. Leave Haslingden on A6177 Grane Road spoilt by 50 limit on long down hill straight. Go across motorway roundabout to next roundabout at Guide village, go right B6321, then right at next roundabout B6236 Haslingden Road back to Haslingden and start.
Leave Bacup on A671 to Burnley, watch speed through village of Weir, over Deerplay summit the drop down to Burnley is a nice twist ride. At lights give it a sharp right on A646 to Todmorden (Tod) again twisty ride. Tod centre roundabout left on A646 (Halifax Rd) to Hebden Bridge, touristy, but plenty of places for a coffee and bacon butty. Leave on A646 towards Halifax, take sign to Sowerby Bridge (right turn A6139) drop down hill to town centre at bottom right A58 towards Rochdale, fork right at Ripponden A58 ( bumpy and woolly things on road) over Blackstone Edge and down into Littleborough.

Alternative to stop at Hollingworth Lake, biker meet place, when at Littleborough (left before railway bridge)
This is one hell of a road but be carefull, casualty rates are high, danger is everywhere, best times are weekdays after 7pm and weekends before 9am. Tight twists, awesome straights but take care this road is one of the most dangerous in the UK
Excellent road for a short, interesting blast. Watch out for stray sheep and respect village speed limits, please.
