A 40 mile ride at a reasonable pace, with 950m of climbing.

The first of four road rides around the Yorkshire Dales over the Easter bank holiday weekend, based around Hawes.

This is a lazy 37 mile (60km) circular road cycle, starting in Hawes and following picturesque Swaledale to Reeth for lunch.  Being Yorkshire there will be a hill or two.  A slightly later start of 10:30 to allow those travelling on the Friday morning to reach us, and let me have a vague sleep in.

Swaledale is one of the most northerly of the dales and it has perhaps the wildest, most unspoilt scenery in the National Park. Many of the villages and tiny hamlets - such as Gunnerside (from 'Gunnar's saetr') - still carry the names given to them by Viking farmers who settled here over a thousand years ago. 

Will, your leader will be staying at Bainbridge Ings Caravan and Campsite.  Plenty of alternative accommodation available in Hawes including several pubs.
