Pre and post ride refreshments are available at the Dales MTB Centre. We will also be having the prize giving at the Centre after the ride.
Swaledale is one of the quieter Yorkshire Dales, but has grand vista's and some spectacular riding.
The route starts with a road warm up then continues onto the moors for some fast and furious fun.
We then ride over the old mine workings to Great Pinseat with its moon like surface and head towards Gunnerside.
After descending Gunnerside we stop for lunch at Ghyllfoot tea rooms to refuel before a pleasant bimble back to the start along the River Swale.
We will be pre ordering lunch before the event so would appreciate your cooperation when signing up, menu will be posted up later. Thanks.
