Escape the City to the Yorkshire Dales
Explore England's most spectacular landscapes on our 3 day guided, supported, all inclusive cycle experience in the Yorkshire Dales.
Not for the faint hearted! Aye, this ride will be most enjoyable if you're an experienced cyclist. We've designed it to be 'an achievable challenge'. That means, if you're used to full day cycle rides (think 50 to 60 miles per day), comfortable with hill climbing (think 3000 - 3500 feet of climbing per day) then you're ready to take on the cyclists' paradise that is Yorkshire.
Expect breath-taking landscapes and outstanding natural beauty at every turn. Come join us, you won't regret it.
