  • Gunnerside Gill & Apedale

    Gunnerside Gill & Apedale mountain bike route in the Yorkshire Dales is 28.5 miles long and is graded moderate. It heads up Swaledale and Gunnerside before returning through Apedale. There's a good mixture of rocky trails through the Swaledale and over the moors with some great descents and long climbs in Gunnerside Gill and Apedale. Although a long, hard ride Gunnerside has some good mid-ride refuelling options.

  • Harkerside and Apedale from Dales Bike Centre

    Approximately 20km (12 miles), but don't be fooled by the short distance, the ride has nearly 600m of climbing, which of course means plenty of time going downhill at great speeds, firstly on a moorland track, as you dip into Wensleydale, then secondly over grouse moors, shooting butts and grassy singletrack. The final 4km drop you more than 300 vertical metres down to the Dales Bike Centre where an epic cake usually awaits.
