DALES LOOP SW
106 ml / 170 km
The route is described anti-clockwise from Kirkby Lonsdale. It’s probably preferable to do it anti-clockwise owing to the asymmetry of the main climb but you could just as easily start in Settle, Gargrave or Wharfedale. Of course, only a fool would start in Wensleydale as this would leave Outershaw Side, the highest road in the Dales, for tired legs. You have been warned.
