A 200 km Audax, long-distance cycling event from the Lancashire coast to the Yorkshire Dales and back again - in a day! Entries so far: 6. Last updated: 18.08.2017

Start by riding along the flatlands of the Fylde, pass through Lancaster City Centre, then follow a pleasant set of A + B roads to the first control at Sedbergh. From here, climb over Garsdale Head into the Yorkshire Dales National Park on a route offering panoramic views across Yorkshire's spectacular landscape. Eventually, you’ll arrive at the (usually very busy) market town of Hawes , the second control, and the half-way point where there’s a good selection of cafes, pubs and tearooms. You’ll start the return by climbing over Newby head, past the Ribblehead Viaduct offering magnificent views across 3-peaks country. Head back into Lancashire by climbing over Tatham Fell/Cross o’ Greet and a final chance for some refreshments at the Riverbank Tearooms at Slaidburn, deep inside the Forest of Bowland. The last stretch follows a scenic route through the Bowland Fells before a final run through the Lancashire Fylde’s flatlands.
