It is with great sadness that we’ve learnt of the death of a cyclist on Greenhow Hill near Pateley Bridge. The exact cause is not yet known, but please take extra care when making this progressively steep (up to 18%), winding and lengthy descent. Watch out for motor vehicles, horse riders and pedestrians.

This YouTube clip takes you through it:
