Delightful Dales 200 route

Icon
Start by riding through the Ribble Valley before heading into the Yorkshire Dales to climb the very steep, 25% gradient of Park Rash, where you can enjoy magnificent views across Coverdale whilst descending to Leyburn, the first control (73 km), where you can enjoy a cuppa n’ cake in any number of cafes around the market square.

Choose your own route to Muker; either ride past the magnificent Castle Bolton and then climb over Askrigg Common, past Oxnop Scar, or over the, “Cote de Grinton Moor” and ride through the picturesque little villages of Swaledale. Both routes then climb over Tailbridge Moor into Cumbria, with a rewarding and very deserving long descent to the second control at Kirkby Stephen (121 km).
