Details for Day Rides in The Yorkshire Dales

Day Rides in the Yorkshire Dales is a series of mapped cycle routes of varying difficulty, which run throughout the Yorkshire Dales countryside. Gentle rides through the valley or strenuous hill climbs are all covered, and offer a great day out.

For more experienced riders the Dales offers some fantastic cycling through some of the best scenery in the country. There are some of the most famous climbs in the UK to take on including the Buttertubs Pass, Fleet Moss, Park Rash and the Coal Road, or you can visit the highest pub in England at Tan Hill.
