Description

Monday; Starts from Robin Hoods Bay, 9AM, and we head off on to the North Yorkshire where we will do a loop of the best tracks on the Moors, Lunch at a Moorland Pub! Tracks include river crossings [no raised intake required] Moorland Drovers roads, muddy rocky climbs mixed with incredible views, the day ends in Helmsley one of North Yorkshires stunning towns where you have time to have wander about before heading to our campsite for the next 2 nights

Tuesday; Starts in Leyburn North Yorkshire, today is very different to the Moors, again with river crossings, but with some more technical sections, rock crawls with awesome views some of the best in the UK, a famous Roman road and so much more, its wild Yorkshire at its best, lunch at a farm café, the day finishing again back to the campsite

Wednesday; We leave the Dales for the last time and head off into the Westmoreland Hills, the change is amazing as we edge round Pen-y-ghent one of the famous three peaks, lunch is in Litton Dale at the Queens Arms, from Litton dale it’s a tough ascent over the dale, and passing many pot holes , and yes fields full of rocks the day ends Kirkby Lonsdale at the Devils Bridge hopefully for a cuppa at the bikers café.

Thursday; after breakfast we head off for some classic and technical Lake District lanes, which includes breath taking views incredible rock crawls, river crossing and probably two of the best tracks available in the UK, and if the ferry is running over Windermere we cross the lake towards more lanes and back to our campsite. Lunch will be at one of the newest and best cafes in the Lakes.

Friday; We leave the campsite for the last day which takes in great lanes but also includes a journey that weather permitting will last with you for a life time, we will head off over Hardknott Pass the steepest tarmac road in England, lunch at the pub will be after travelling the pass, just in case! We then start to see glimpses of the Irish Sea as we work our way through tight country lanes to our end destination the Irish Sea, , sadly this is where we say our goodbyes after 5 days of the best lanes available , good food and great company,
