The route I took began at Blackpool to Scarborough, organised independently and ended up being a total of 166 miles in 2 days (93 1st, 73 2nd), some of the hills going through the Dales are extremely tricky to handle, some at 17% and 25% gradient on the 2nd day. Once you pass through Pickering the hills become rolling hills and are pretty easy to go up and 2 last hills right at the end within 4 miles of Scarborough before dropping down into the town. Overall a very good ride!!!

Just finished doing this route to go to Scarborough and Back over Friday and Saturday for Help for Heroes. Thanks a lot it was the best and hardest 2 days i've had in the saddle. We recorded 260 miles actually and did it in 14 hours and 45 minutes. Only problem we had was the speed and size of the A170 which wasn't dangerous but made 60 miles seem like the length of 80 on a nice quiet road were you can talk side by side. The scenery, especially up the Garsedale Valley, is fantastic. The horrid Sutton Bank was really tough but really great in the way climbs are and the last 40 into Scarborough was serverely undulating but you can see for miles around and so it made the miles tick by even quicker. Quite a handful but a top route.
