Delightful Dales 200

205km cycling event starting from Clitheroe, Lancashire. Controls at Leyburn and Kirkby Stephen.

A 200 km Audax, long-distance cycling event from Lancashire to the Yorkshire Dales and back again - in a day. Remember to put your clock forward the night before!

Start by riding through the Ribble Valley before heading into the Yorkshire Dales to climb the very steep, 25% gradient of Park Rash, enjoying magnificent views across Coverdale whilst descending to Leyburn and the first control. Enjoy a cuppa n' cake in any number of cafes around the market square before choosing your own route to Muker and then climb over Birkdale Common into Cumbria. Ride through the Mallerstang Common following the Settle - Carlisle Railway before two big climbs over the 'Old Coal Road' and Newby Head, soon arriving at the Ribblehead Viaduct and the gateway to 3-peaks country offering spectacular views of the surrounding hills. Carry on through Ribblesdale offering fine views of Pen-y-Ghent (weather permitting!!), before the final leg through the Ribble Valley. Overall, a wonderful days cycling with beautiful scenery covering some wild and exposed moorland (roads). Accept as seen!
