This is a mountain biking guidebook to the Yorkshire Dales. "Yorkshire Dales Mountain Biking - The North Dales" is a user-friendly guide to the best riding in one of the country's most MTB-friendly national parks. The Yorkshire Dales have the lot: short riverside cruises on good trails, epic rides taking in big views, moorland singletrack and rubble-strewn descents; restored bridleways, dedicated bike 'stables' and picturesque towns and villages - everything a rider needs for a good trip. Covering Swaledale, Wensleydale, Arkengarthdale, Langstrothdale and the Howgill Fells, this guide contains 24 routes from 8 to 60km long. Drawn up using clear, easy-to-follow directions and graded for difficulty, they are plotted onto Harvey MTB-specific maps, profiled to show height gain and illustrated with colour photography throughout. A special bonus section introduces the best downhill runs, climbs and cruises in the area, as well as a selection of 'road climbs to make you wince'! This is the companion guide to "Yorkshire Dales Mountain Biking - The South Dales" (0954813162). Nick Cotton is a 'Cycle Route Consultant' and a well-known and respected guidebook writer.
