Many top cyclists train in the Yorkshire Dales with its quiet roads, great hill climbs and fantastic variety of scenery and cycling trails. It’s no surprise that this area was at the heart of stage one of the Tour de France cycle race in 2014 and the Tour de Yorkshire in 2016.
From mountain biking over the remote Dallowgill moor to a 40 mile road cycling loop through beautiful scenery, short but steep killer climbs to pitch yourself against, and some lovely quiet routes for family cycles - we urge you to come and experience cycling in Nidderdale AONB for yourself!
If you don't have your own bike with you, there are plenty of cycle hire companies around Nidderdale AONB, so there's nothing to stop you!
