Something I came up with a few months ago: https://velotastic.co.uk/the-peak-divide/

Interesting idea :-bd

I'd do your route south to north I think, and might be tempted to chuck a bit more mountainbikey stuff in.

Komotto wont let me download as a gpx... seems like it wants me to pay. Any chance youve got the actual gpx route link so can download into my Wahoo app in prep for when the new Roam comes/gets ordered

Plenty scope for more mountain bikery stuff (not that I know the area too well).
Start Marsden and good riding to Wessenden Head (Kirklees Way)
Then short stretch of road, then BW to Digley Res.
Winscar Res... take TPT east then head south to join your route at Mickleden Edge.

Further south I’d be tempted to use PBW rather than lots of small roads...
