For the 3rd year Overground Underground has teamed up with Escape Bike Shop to bring you a fantastic cycle sportive offering cyclists the challenge of either 40 or 70 miles approximately in some of the most stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Dales.

Both routes enjoy a food stop in the beautiful village of Dent where savoury sandwiches, sweet treats and a hot cuppa await you.

For full route information and entries please visit our dedicated site Escape to the Dales or click on the British Cycling logo below to be re-directed.


We would also like to thank our sponsors this year Country Village Inns and Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery  for their support with this event.

Country Village Inns – Mat from Country Village Inns will also be volunteering at the event manning the Escape van at Ribblehead Viaduct for water top ups and general support.
