Yorkshire Dales Sign

The circular route following country lanes allows you to start anywhere en route, but we would recommend starting in Skipton, a pretty market town in North Yorkshire which is well served by train and road. It all passes through many great and historic places such as Bolton Abbey, Settle, Malham, Hawes, and Grassington amongst others. We have cycling holiday options ranging from two to six days, which puts you in control of how long you want to take riding around the Dales.
