ABR issue 48 route files: Yorkshire Dales Discovery Route

Post by Bryn » Fri Sep 14, 2018 1:27 pm

For the September/October 2018 edition of Adventure Bike Rider magazine, we headed to the Yorkshire Dales to create a route around one of the UK's most scenically stunning national parks.

Realising that not everybody has a few days to spare, we decided to make two routes for this issue's tour. The first is a one-day ride that'll take you roughly 4 hours non-stop to complete, being 104 miles long. It starts in Kirkby Lonsdale (at the popular bikers' meeting point at Devil's Bridge), just a few miles off the M6, and completes a loop around the north-western Yorkshire Dales, taking in some of the most marvellous views and roads, including the brilliant Buttertubs Pass.

The second option is for those of you who want to make a weekend of it, being 184 miles long. This takes in the same roads and sights as the first route (starting again in Kirkby Lonsdale), but adds in the southern areas of the Yorkshire Dales, taking you into the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Both rides are truly incredible, and the Yorkshire Dales has to be one of the best places to ride in England. We were there on one of the busiest weekends in summer, and we rarely saw another vehicle on the road.

We've plotted the routes out so that you can download them, stick 'em in your SatNav and ride them. Simply right click on the attachments below called 'Yorkshire Dales One Day Route.gpx' or 'Yorkshire Dales Two Day Route.gpx' and choose 'Save Link As'. Once you've saved it to your computer load it into your SatNav as per the manufacturer's instructions and get riding!

Once youv'e done the two day route, its also worth tracking through the back lanes of the Forest of Bowland to get back to Devils Bridge from Skipton :)
