This 3 part film features the complete Etape du Dales route and riders from the 2015 event filmed LIVE on the 17th May.
Starting at Wharfedale Rugby Club the route heads roughly North West alongside the River Wharfe through Conistone, Kettlewell, Starbotton and Buckden. Turning left the course goes through Hubberholme and Yockenthwaite and climbs gently to Oughtershaw at the start of the first big climb, Fleet Moss and the long, fast descent into Hawes. Next the classic climb over the Buttertubs Pass. Turning right at the bottom and along the undulating valley through Muker, Gunnerside, Low Row and climbing left out of Feetham, over the moor, through the water-splash and down the other side into the Arkengarthdale valley. Turning left to start the long climb up Tan Hill to Britain’s Highest Pub at 528m! Turning left to descend Stonesdale Moor with a couple of tricky hairpins before turning right to go over Birkdale Common then the entertaining and panoramic descent to Nateby. Turning left and heading South now past Pendragon Castle and Outhgill. Gently climbing along the Mallerstang valley and turning right (carefully) onto the A684. You’re quickly off the main road, turning left at Garsdale and the steep climb over Coal road and the even steeper descent, down to Cowgill and some very tricky hairpins! Turn left and climb up through Stone House and right on the B6255. Fast and flowing descent to the Ribblehead Viaduct, turn left and descend through Horton-in-Ribblesdale to Stainforth. Final big climb now, with Pen-y-ghent on your left, over the moors and descend to Halton Gill. Turn right and it’s pretty much downhill all the way back through Litton, Arncliffe, Kilnsey and turn back into Grassington.
Total distance 180 km. Total Climb 3428 metres.
