The Long Causeway travels from Mereclough on the outskirts of Burnley to the rural Calderdale village of Blackshaw Head. This corridor is spectacular with the majority of the corridor passing through rural moorland. With 10.3km of cycling on offer the corridor consists of 254m of climbing and a 138m of descent, however once the climb out of Mereclough is behind you this road is quick unless there are strong winds blowing in your face. The corridor is cycled by hundreds of riders each week and it’s easy to understand why, at Blackshaw Head this corridor offers a range of options to visit the historic
village of Heptonstall or head down the super steep Mytholm steeps to the tourism hotspot of Hebden Bridge.
Distance: 10.3 km
