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. 68 entries as at: 16.03.2020

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!

AUK have decided to allow event organisers to decide whether or not to run their own events. I intend to proceed with the running of the Delightful Dales 200 on the day. Briefly, I'd advise anybody who's travelling to areas in Category 1 (Wuhan City and Hubei Province - both in China); Iran; Daegu or Cheongdo (Republic of Korea); Italy within 14 days preceding the event not to attend on the day. I appreciate that most if not anybody will be travelling to any of the COVID-19 category 1 affected areas between now and the event so I now look forward to seeing most if not all of those that have entered on the day and do hope you enjoy the randonnee.
