Introduction

A good off road cycle starting from Chapel le Dale, head under Ribblehead viaduct before heading uphill alongside the railway lines then skirt around Whernside, steep uphill (pushing the bikes by this stage) over the tops and enjoy the downhill to Whernside Manor. Then follow the road all the way to Dent Station, another uphill is rewarded by a fabulous moor-downhill section which brings you under another Viaduct and eventually ends at Stonehouse Farm. Uphill again now on the road, before leaving onto Bridleway across Gayle Moor which takes you back to the main road up to Chapel le Dale. Be sure to grab a pin in the pub before leaving!
