Beyond the Dales We Know


300km cycling event starting from Newby Wiske, nr Thirsk. Controls at Boroughbridge, Ilkley, Tebay J38 Services, Middleton In Teesdale and Newby Wiske., plus 2 information controls.

300 km with an easy start and finish on mostly decent roads, with all of the hills in the 200 km from Boroughbridge. And such hills - it's a grand tour of the lesser-known roads of the Dales, Howgills and Pennines.

It's easy to get to the start by train (direct trains to Northallerton and Thirsk from London, Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham and lots of other places), and there's free* camping before and afters. There's also food at the start and finish. We've had dhal soup and I'm working on arranging a cake mountain to dwarf last year's, and most importantly, if you're staying over, there's a massive after-ride party with lots of beer and music. Plus breakfast on Sunday for anyone staying over. * Free with the chance of me shaking a charity bucket at you, as Mike is letting us use his farm for nowt, in exchance for the proceeds from the event going to a charity of his choice - which is the Alzheimer's Society. But there's no obligation.
