The Three Peaks Classic is a sportive through the glorious and picturesque Yorkshire Dales. The routes are around the famous three peaks of Yorkshire; Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside & Ingleborough. We pass through Ribblehead, with its famous viaduct as well as Dent and Ingleton. One of the highlights is Thornton Lane from Dentdale to Ingleton with its stunning scenery and short but brutal climb.
Starting on the edge of the National Park near Settle, we are offering a choice of two routes. The longer goes via Dent, while the shorter still visits all the iconic locations, but misses out the climbs over to and out of the Dent valley.
