King of the Pennines
This 100 mile challenge takes in over 11,000 ft. of climbing through the Peninnes which rewards riders with some of the best downhill straights and stunning views in the North. This prized area of outstanding beauty will see you dig deep and ride to the max, with the route taking you to the limestone splendor of Malham Cove, through Kettlewell and full steam ahead to the heights of Fleet Moss. Looping back around to Kettlewell you test your brakes on Park Rash before the final climb to Halton Height and the final descent in to Skipton. Expect highs of 1913ft and wind curdling descents as your journey is flanked by plummeting ravines, heather moorland and spitting streams. For those looking for a shorter (but just as tough) challenge there's the 48 mile loop featuring 3 steady climbs and equally fantastic scenery.

By Stewart coote: Thanks for a great event. I entered this ride as a birthday treat to myself. It is a birthday that i won't forget in a hurry. I thought that the Derbyshire hills were tough,but Yorkshire is on another level. Amazing day. I think I enjoyed it? Ha,ha
