Easter Road Cycling-Yorkshire Dales - Day 4 of 4 - Ingleton
9 people attending
3 places left
Seemed a shame to head home without a quick cycle. The final of four days of road riding around the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A later start (10:30) to allow us to pack up from our various accommodation and head to Ingleton.
This is a lazish 37 mile (60km) circular road cycle, starting in Ingleton and heading north towards Dent. Being Yorkshire there will be a hill or two.
There are several car parks in Ingleton. As I will be towing a caravan, it is my plan to park in a random residential street, such as this one; Low Demesne.

Please pay attention to the weather forecast, no one likes riding in the rain (especially me).

Please bring plenty of snacks, the plan is to go to a cafe/pub but I cannot guarantee a convenient pub will show itself at lunchtime, they have a nasty habit of closing down and becoming housing.
