With fairly short distances, you maybe in the saddle only three or four hours, the Yorkshire Dales Cycleway is a fantastic way to discover the beauty of the iconic national park in northern England. Visit the traditional villages, castles & churches and lock up your bikes and walk to features such as waterfalls, rivers or museums. En-route, you will find many eateries to keep you fueled, limestone pavements, the home of Wensleydale Cheese, as well as plenty of friendly pubs & tearooms.
The iconic Yorkshire Dales National Park has extraordinary natural beauty. The landscape has over thousands of years been fashioned into a range of shallow and deep dales (valleys), gorges, rocky pavements, waterfalls and gushing rivers, caves and woodland glades. Much later, our forefathers created farms and fields lined with miles of dry‐stone walls, the now ribbed ruins of abbeys and medieval castles. Pastures glowing with multi‐ shades of green sit below wilder lands of heather and sedge, home of red grouse and deer.
