The Crossing

Book Now

Get ready to tackle 200 gnarly miles over three days through stunning tracks that span the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors; sampling some of the UK's finest mountain biking and jaw-dropping scenery.

The route is designed to flow as a journey and to be achievable by a large cross-section of riders. You will need to be comfortable on off-road terrain and be ready to switch regularly from tarmac to trail to gravel and back again.
