Description

201km cycling event starting from Padiham, Lancashire. Controls at Slaidburn, Tan Hill Inn, Gargrave and Burnley.

A 200 km Audax, long-distance cycling event from Lancashire to the Yorkshire Dales and back again - in a day! Uses commercial controls throughout. 42 entries as at: 05.08.2019!

A scenic but challenging circuit around the Yorkshire Dales. Start by riding over the 'Padiham Heights' and Nick o' Pendle to Clitheroe before climbing over the Bowland Fells into the Yorkshire Dales; climbing over some legendary climbs including: Newby Head; Buttertubs Pass and Stonesdale Moor to the Tan Hill Inn. Riders should be prepared for a long but rewarding day's cycling through the Forest of Bowland and the Yorkshire Dales. The return leg retraces over Buttertubs Pass to Hawes before climbing over Fleet Moss, the highest road in Yorkshire, into Wharfedale. Co-op/cafe control at Gargrave 20-miles from the finish! Although few fail to finish, many riders take 12+ hours! No info's. Simple navigation. Most enjoy the rural roads. Discussion thread here: yacf.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=10329.0
