The Etape du Dales is a stunning ride through some of the UK's most remote and scenic countryside. The route of 110 miles covers many of the county's major climbs and the dales of Wharfedale, Littondale, Wensleydale, Swaledale, Arkengarthdale, Birkdale, Garsdale, Dentdale, Ribblesdale - AND there is not a single set of traffic lights on the whole route!
