Route Info

This ride explores the Westmorland Dales – an area which became part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in 2016. It is a stunning upland of limestone scenery and pretty villages which is undulating rather than mountainous. The route starts in Kirkby Stephen which is a great market town with everything you will need, there is even bike hire available above the Visitor Centre. Half way round you will reach Orton which has a pub, café, shop and chocolate factory – what more could you want. The route back passes the delightful Sunbiggin Tarn and a series of great quiet lanes lead back to Kirkby Stephen.
