Explore England's most spectacular landscapes on our 3 day guided, supported 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 - 4000 feet of climbing per day) then you're ready to take on the cyclists' paradise that is Yorkshire.

        The experience

        A fully guided, fully-supported, 3 day cycle experience and weekend adventure in the Yorkshire Dales.

        Tackle some of Yorkshire’s most iconic climbs with this intense physical challenge, designed to push your limits but be achievable for the confident and experienced cyclist (in contrast to our Expert-grade rides aimed at sportive riders).

        Our base will be the fully equipped, cosy and carefully selected Skirfare Barn bunkhouse nestled right in the middle of the Dales, so expect to spend every bit of your weekend surrounded by stunning landscapes and with plenty of photo opportunities. 

        Enjoy a relaxed pub dinner in the pretty near-by village of Kilnsey on Friday night and a BBQ dinner with bottomless wine ‘ski lodge style’ on Saturday night.

        Park the bike and explore some of the region’s outstanding natural beauty, including the Ingleton Waterfalls and Malham’s Tarn.

        Wander the narrow lanes of bustling market towns and explore the ruins of Bolton Priory.

        Enjoy afternoon tea and home-baked scones in one of the region’s quintessentially Yorkshire villages.

        Sample local Wensleydale cheese and round off the weekend with a lavish roast dinner, complete with, of course, Yorkshire puddings!
