Upper Wharfedale

This is a lovely route exploring Upper Wharfedale and Littondale and has no big climbs on it. You can do shorter variations such as a return trip to Kilnsey (6.5 miles, 11km), or to Kettlewell (12 miles, 20km). Although an out and back ride, the change in views and scenery means that the return journey is never dull.
