I don't know about the mbuk route but if you are feeling adventurous and fancy some xc I would recommend the Salter Fell route on here, it is tough but rewarding and very isolated. http://www.forestofbowland.com/cycle-routes

Me and a mate did this route on road bikes a few years ago! We rode from preston and returned via quernmore
Think we did around 70 miles all told.
Was a bit heavy going
over top of salter fell and we had to shoulder bikes at one stage.
Would deffo recommend doing on mtb . Only problem is route will be there and back but there is a pub or 2
At both ends so you could have lunch either way ! 8) 8)
