Dalesway Cycle Tour – April 2017

Cycling Colleague Steve Hall of Huddersfield and District CTC has forwarded details of a hostel based cycling tour in the Dales next April. Details as follows :-

Huddersfield CTC Dalesway Cycling Tour – 4 nights

The hostels below are provisionally booked with YHA. This tour is suitable for anyone who can do a Sunday club ride – we will carry bags so an average speed of 8-10 mph. No one left behind. This is wall to wall top Yorkshire scenery. The Dalesway has 8,000 feet of climbing, which averages out at 2,000 feet a day. Again no different from many of our Sunday rides

Route
Start Huddersfield April 3rd overnight Slaidburn. (approx. 50 mile)

April 5th following Kettlewell to Hawes (approx. 50 mile), April 6th to Hawes to Malham (approx. 40 mile). April 7th return Huddersfield (approx. 50 mile).

The final cost is still being finalised but expect to pay around £120.
