A 207 km Audax, long-distance cycling event from Lancashire to the Yorkshire Dales and back again - in a day! Uses commercial controls throughout. Entries so far: 42. Last updated: 12.08.2017. No EoL this year!

A scenic but challenging circuit around the Yorkshire Dales. Start by riding over the 'Padiham Heights' and Nick o' Pendle to Clitheroe before climbing over the Bowland Fells into the Yorkshire Dales; climbing over some legendary climbs including: Newby Head; Buttertubs Pass and Stonesdale Moor to the Tan Hill Inn. Return by riding past the magnificent Castle Bolton and climbing over Kidstones Pass. Riders should be prepared for a long but rewarding day's cycling through the Forest of Bowland and the Yorkshire Dales. Although few fail to finish, many riders take 12+ hours! No info's. Simple navigation. Most enjoy the rural roads. Discussion thread here: yacf.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=10329.0
