This tour allows you to experience the extended Yorkshire Dales Cycleway. The existing route was extended in 2016 and now takes in a stunning section along the side of the Howgill Fells and through the Westmorland Dales, before heading up to the highest pub in Britain at Tan Hill. The tour starts in Skipton (or Ilkley) and is a 250km clockwise circular tour of Yorkshire Dales.
The tour covers the route in 3 days, an average of 83km miles cycling each day, a feast of cycling for keen road cyclists. You will experience challenging climbs, many included in the UK’s 100 Climbs book by Simon Warren, as well as iconic and breathtaking roads, many used in the Tour de France and the Tour de Yorkshire. The number of days can be varied if required, for example, a real challenge would be to ride the route in 2 days, or alternatively you may want to reduce the average km per day and complete it over 4 or 5 days.
We meet you at the start of the tour and ensure you have everything you need and then transport your luggage between overnight stops. Accommodation is in carefully chosen small hotels of character in small villages, with typical Yorkshire Dales facilities including good food options and pubs of real Yorkshire character.
For the group tour option (specific dates) you will ride with an experienced ride guide and also enjoy a group dinner each evening. A great way to make new friends and enjoy the experience together as a group.
The trip will comprise a mix of watching the womens and mens elite races and cycling some of the route as well as other great roads. On the rides there will be 2 ride groups heading in the same direction, with one group for intermediate/advanced riders and a second group covering less distance at a slower pace.
