Escape to the Dales

Meet up Saturday June 27th, event on Sunday June 28th

We thoroughly enjoyed this last year with lovely rolling roads and great company and scenery. An additional factor was a well-stocked food station. The short route is 50 miles and the longer one 65 miles. Entry fee £20.

Full details of the event are found here (opening in a new tab).

Accommodation is available on the Saturday and Sunday nights at Witherslack Cycle Barn. The station for this event is Oxenholme.

Costs – in addition to the event entry fee (which VI’s need to do above)), there will be a £10 tandem hire fee and accommodation fees of around £30 per night. Food will be self-catered, we usually put £5 per person per night in the kitty and cook together.

We aim to meet mid-afternoon on the Saturday. We can pick up from the railway station (3pm), We will adjust the tandems and test ride on Saturday before loading them into the trailer for transport to Ingleton on Sunday. Sunday will be a very early start as start times are usually before 8.30am.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to accommodate guide dogs.

If people need to get back we can drop you at the station on Sunday early evening. Otherwise we will stay at Witherslack for the night.  If you are on the open water swimming course, which follows on from this event it will be possible to stay over and get a lift up to Keswick on the Monday.

If you want to know more or book accommodation or tandems then please contact us.
