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.

I've ridden this area once, and the inclusion of Gunnerside Gill alone makes it probably the best route I will do all year. It's my favourite downhill ever.

I will be doing my best to get to this!

I'm ready for this. I will find a trusty steed to do this because I have a funny feeling it will be like the peaks with plenty of hills.

Thanks andy
