LONG ROUTE

Passing through the villages of Ingleton, Clapham, Horton in Ribblesdale, Dent and Sedbergh before returning via Devil's Bridge and the back roads to Escape Bike Shop, the long route will pass through stunning scenery with challenging climbs and rolling descents amongst some of the finest landscapes in the North of England.

SHORT ROUTE

We're blessed to live and work in one of the prettiest counties in England, with some fine roads and lanes perfect for cycling and all abilities; as such have chosen routes in that vain, to be scenic and enjoyable rather than the hardest/toughest course.
