This year we are running four audaxes on Saturday 4th June from Richmond, North Yorkshire – Dave’s Ultra Dales Tour 200KM, Dave's Dales Tour 160KM, Dave's Mini Dales Tour 110KM and Lucia's Vale of Mowbray Meander 100KM. The Dales routes cover some of the most scenic and challenging roads of the Yorkshire Dales, the Lucia route is more gentle following the Vale of Mowbray between Richmond and Stokesley. Fine weather, good food and pleasant company are guaranteed!! The event HQ is at the Swaledale Outdoor club room in Richmond, where afterwards you will have the opportunity to sample homemade baking and enjoy a pint or 2 at the bar.
