Yorkshire Dales Gravel - 7th May


Date: Sat 7 May, 2022

Venue: Skipton

RIDE OVERVIEW

One of our best & most remote rides of the year, the Yorkshire Dales Gravel Epic packs in beautiful back roads and some long, sweeping gravel sections. Starting from Skipton, we head up to Settle via Malham and then along the Pennine Way up to Semer Water and almost 35km of remote, stunning off road riding. On the way home there is a gravel climb before a quick descent back to Skipton. A glorious, remote and challenging 108km loop.

DISTANCE: 100KM | ELEVATION: 2,000M

RIDE DIFFICULTY 4.5/5

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY 4.5/5

PERCENTAGE OF ROUTE OFF ROAD 50%

Terrain & Bike Choice: The route is 50% backroads and 50% gravel trails with a couple of short hike-a-bike sections. The gravel can be quite heavy in the Dales so we would recommend a gravel bike with 40mm tyres if you are experienced & a good bike handler or a MTB for everyone else.
