Join us on this epic road ride around some of the best parts of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. And if you want to do more, why not stay overnight and make a weekend of it? 

From Settle we'll head up Ribblesdale, past the Ribblehead Viaduct, to Hawes, then down the amazing Wharfedale, and past Malham Tarn back to Settle.

Pace and Terrain

On road, with a healthy dose of climbing, the climb south out of Sleddale after Hawes being especially tough! The event pace and route is designed for road bikes rather than hybrids and is aimed at those who are reasonably bike fit.

You do need reasonable personal fitness for this event, however the day is intended to be an outing rather than an endurance test. We will stop for slower riders to catch up whilst going faster in between stops to allow them to develop their technique and fitness. Broadly, anyone who has recently cycled over 50 miles and who has tackled some steep hills without too much difficulty will be able to complete this ride.
