Yorkshire Dales Mountain Biking Vertebrate guide book
The Classic Pennine Trails
The Yorkshire Dales Mountain Biking guide book features 26 rides between 10 and 43 kilometres in length in one of the UK’s most mountain-bike-friendly national parks.
The routes make the most of the Dales’ superb network of stone-based trails, rideable in all seasons.
Classic loops take in the best of Swaledale, a tour of Ingleborough, big days around Whernside and Pen-y-ghent, quintessential Dales scenery near Malham and Kilnsey, and moorland riding above Pateley Bridge.
A Bonus Section includes information about the Howgills, the easy-going Swale Trail and the Pennine Bridleway, as well as the riding at Gisburn Forest and Stainburn which lies just outside the national park.
There are also top tens and a detailed appendix.
Written by Dales local and experienced author Nick Cotton, each ride is described with easy-to-follow directions and is plotted on clear and easy-to-use Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 mapping.
Also included with each ride are details of distance, timings and difficulty gradings, plus refreshment stops and local knowledge.
