This corridor is the ‘Real Deal’ selected by the ASO the organisers of the Tour De France to be part of stage 2 in the 2014 event. The corridor begins in Bronte Country at Oxenhope a location used in the filming of The Railway Children. The corridor 10.6km in length steadily climbs 243m to the summit at Cock Hill before descending 348m to the Town of Hebden Bridge. This corridor has plenty to offer with a number of pubs on route and an ice cream van usually parked part way on the descent. Leaving the village of Oxenhope the corridor soon reaches open moorland to Cock Hill and beyond. The road snakes
through the village of Pecket Well before descending into the tree lined ‘Spring Wood’ into Hebden Bridge.
Distance: 10.5 km
