Deepest Darkest Dales Loop
Starting and ending at Crooklands Hotel, this is a full day's ride through some of the very, very finest roads that Yorkshire has to offer. Do this once and you'll be looking for any excuse to come back to ride it again, and again, and again.
DO NOT leave England without riding this route!
Lakes & Passes Galore Loop
If it were ever possible to overdose on magnificent Lake District scenery this would be it. With lush, green enclosed lanes to lakeside meanders and stunning switchbacks along glorious passes this route has it all!
Short on time?
This is a short but very scenic route that you can easily extend to make a day of it. This one takes in the iconic stretch between Hawes and Sedburgh in the Yorkshire Hills with stunning views across the county with windy twisted roads. Perfect for a post-breakfast lap to blow off the cobwebs, with some really nice spots to have lunch in Dent and Hawes with various small pubs on the way.

While here, why not enjoy the famous Devil's Bridge at Kirkby Lonsdale which is a mere 10 minutes ride away, or go on a Lake Windermere Cruise which is 20 minutes away. The possibilities are endless.
We also offer leaflets and directions to local tourist attractions, guides on walks and cycling routes.
