A ride heading for Leyburn, starting in Ripon and heading along the southern shoulder of Wensleydale through Grewelthorpe and Masham before taking in some of the route of Stage 1 up to Middleham and Leyburn.
Leyburn is a great stop off point around the half way point with ample cafe’s and a vibrant market place and a good selection of shops.
The return is the reward for the gradual climb up Wensleydale to Leyburn, a long descent along the north shoulder of the valley down through Patrick Brompton to Bedale. Head straight through Bedale and follow quieter roads through Burneston, Kirklington and Wath before a final climb and descent into Ripon.
