From Leeds to Skipton
We asked journalist Joe Shute to join us on a cycling break and share with you his route and top tips. Joe relives the thrill of this year’s Peloton, cycling part of the Tour De Yorkshire route through the Yorkshire Dales.
A well signposted route, start by heading north out of Leeds through Headingly and onto Pool in Wharfedale. Continue west through Askwith and Ilkleythe north again up through Bolton and Abbey. Start climbing into the Dales, heading for Grassington. Then it’s a long slog towards Kettlewell and up towards Aysgarth and Askrigg. Start your return by going west towards Hawes looping back via Kettlewell and all the way back through the Dales finishing in Skipton.
