HIGHLIGHTS

This tour includes 3 days of sublime Adventure Bike riding along a mixture of sealed and unsealed roads, through 3 of Englands National Parks.

We consider this tour to be one of our favourite long weekenders, with a great mix of scenery and even type of road possible (with the exception of Motorways and the like, yuk).

Included is 3 nights accommodation, so all you need to bring is yourself, your bike, and some changes of clothes.

Our Tour starts in Whitehaven in Cumbria on the West Coast of England, our route takes us through all the great passes of the Lake District, past many of the Great Lakes, and along the unsealed Old Coach Road (as well as numerous others).

Day 2 takes us through the Yorkshire Dales, with its faster, sweeping roads, the iconic Buttertubs Pass, we call in at England's Highest pub, ride multiple unsealed trails that are mainly rock and gravel, including the old Roman Cam High Road.

Day 3 finishes in the fishing town of Whitby, but not before riding England's longest unsealed road as we ride over the North York Moors

There is no hurry, each day there is plenty of time to stop, admire the scenery, take photos, and have a coffee or two.

ROUTE

ITINERARY

Day 1 Lake District (195 miles)

We start the night before and have Dinner together to get to know each other, provide a briefing, and answer any of your last-minute questions.

On our first day riding, we head through the Lake District, taking in all the great passes, including the iconic, if not infamous Hardknott Pass early in the day and finish with the Old Coach Road after riding several other unsealed roads in the area.

Day 2 Yorkshire Dales National Park (160 miles)

The scenery changes dramatically, gone are a lot of the single-track roads winding their way up, down, and between England's highest mountains. 

Today it's rolling hills as we ride through the Yorkshire Dales, stopping along the way at landmarks such as the Ribblehead Viaduct and riding the lovely Buttertubs Pass.

Today we increase the number of trails and offroad miles as we ride the Roman Cam High Road, cross streams, and ride over the fells before stopping for the night and a well-earned rest.

Day 3 North York Moors National Park (140 miles)

We finish the tour with another change of scenery, we ride England's longest unsealed road as we cross the North York Moors.

The scenery across the moors, some would say, is bleak and barren, we prefer to think of them as an almost carless playground that has some of the best roads winding their way across the beautiful Heather moorland.

We finish our ride in the beautiful town of Whitby on the East Coast around mid to late afternoon.
