Yorkshire Dales Cycleway

The Yorkshire Dales Cycleway (YDCW) is a superb but challenging 210km (130 mile) circular route visiting most of the major dales in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The stunning scenery, breath taking landscapes and quiet roads make this a 'must do' cycle tour.  Overnight stays in quintessential Dales villages give the oportunity to sample great food and drink.  Start your adventure from here at Dales Bike Centre, why not book your first night stay so your well rested and ready for the journey ahead.  Get some last minute advice from a friendly face in the bikeshop and pickup that last little thing you forgot to pack.  On your journeys end be sure to call in and sign the visitor book and even rest up for another night stay before moving on.  The Yorkshire Dales Cycleway is ideal for a leisurely six day tour or for those seeking more of a challenge 4 or 5 day programs are good viable options.
