Fancy taking on the Challenge?

With 3 routes available at 40, 80 & 111 miles, find your challenge

At 40 miles, our Reservoir Rush route gives you a perfectly bite sized slice of the action. Quiet back roads, challenging climbs, thrilling descents and epic Yorkshire scenery that will see you grinning all the way back to base. This route is open to riders 12+

Our classic 80 mile Reservoir Romp gives you that 'Golidlocks' distance taking you right into the heart of three peaks territory. It may get a bit salty on the fearsome switchbacks of Langcliffe Scar but then its the oh so sweet descent of majestic Malham Cove and pleasant rolling miles back to base. Just right. This route is open to riders 16+

Still not enough? Then you need our headline Reservoir Rogue route. 111 miles of pure Yorkshire awesomeness with 4 of The Official 100 Greatest this is a BIG day out in the Dales.

Comparable to the Fred Whitton & Etape du Dales? Our riders last year seemed to think so so go on, be a rogue... This route is open to riders 18+
