I rode it clockwise and, a week later, anti-clockwise, starting from Broughton. For some reason, I found the AC route more tiring, possibly because the climbs come in the last quarter. I lost the route twice each time. The signs are there but they`re not always obvious. It helps to know that Route 622 is the Guild Wheel. The steep climb (or drop) by Brockholes is verging on dangerous, especially in the wet. Going anti-clockwise at busy times is a bit hairy at times as most go clockwise and parties tend to spread themselves across the road (especially ladies!) so you can come round a bend and meet someone head on. Pedestrians appreciate a warning on the bell. All in all, a pleasant ride through nice country. 2 hours and 20 minutes.
