This map shows the route we will be taking for our 100 mile horse ride. You can see the main points on the map where we will be passing through and spending the night. You really get a feel for the scale of the ride when looking at the map as a whole. It is looking slightly scary!
Also included on the map is the future extension of the Penine Bridleway. This will provide double the amount of bridleway than is currently there now. A future challenge!?!
