Swale Trail 

Here at Dales Bike Centre we are the gateway to 'Swale Trail', the Yorkshire Dales only dedicated easy going off-road mountain bike trail.  Swale Trail is a stunning picturesque ride up Swaledale shadowing the river Swale on easy going trails.  Ideal route for the not-so-extreme of off road cyclists, MTB'ers and families with children that are confident riders.  Being a linear route riders can take in as much of Swale Trail as they like.  For some families with younger riders 3 or 4km out then back is plenty fun, for the stronger kids large and small the 12km to the pretty village of Gunnerside and the Kings Head pub or Ghyllfoot cafe for a little refreshment before heading back is perfect.  For those feeling adventurous pressing on from Gunnerside to the village Keld is hard work but is well rewarded with great views. 

There's is not a better place in the Yorkshire Dales to cycle 'On or Off-road'
