The Luddenden Valley is an easy climb part hidden away with a mix of road and bridleway. With a 2.2% average gradient and a maximum gradient of 5.6% this is a good climb for those who are new to mountain biking. From Luddenden village the route follows a bridleway that climbs steadily with the odd obstacle on the path. At the head of this climb the options are not the kindest for those less confident on steep climbs with a short but sharp climb to Booth or the super road climb to Wainstalls. Climb status entry level (Green)
Entry Level – Green
Entry Level climbs have a slight gradient and are likely to be short with no technical difficulty, they are ideal for people who are new to cycling and have limited experience cycling uphill. Calderdale with its steep sided valleys has very few climbs of this nature.
