To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Restrap, Cyclist has teamed up with the family-run adventure brand to bring you Ride T'Pub, the latest multi-day off-road event across the stunning landscape of the Yorkshire Dales.

Taking place across the Late May Bank Holiday (25th-27th May), this weekend of riding will take you from city to country as you climb 530 metres (1,730 feet) on and off road to the peak of Tan Hill and the highest pub in Britain.

Over two days, riders will cover 160km (100 miles) from Leeds to the Tan Hill Inn over various backroads, bridleways and singletracks before finishing with a night of camping, beer, food and live music at the traditional 17th-century pub.

Day one, on Saturday 25th May, will depart from the La Bogetta Milanese cafè in Leeds after a quick coffee and chat before heading north-west to Helwitt Bridge on the River Ribble and at the base of Yorkshire's famous three peaks.

After a night under the stars, riders will then navigate a combination of gravel paths, tricky climbs and calming tarmac roads across three valleys before finishing atop Tan Hill.

On arrival, you'll have a chance to grab a beer, enjoy a warm dinner and some live music and chat through a memorable two days of riding. The event culminates on the Monday morning where you will be able to travel back to Leeds by train or pre-booked coach. 

Alternatively, there is also the choice of a ride back to the city.

Tickets to the event will cost £150 which will get you entry to the event, a GPX route file, Restrap and Cyclist ride captains, two nights of camping with breakfast included, two evening meals, a goody bag, movie night and DJ and band at the pub.

Details, tickets and further information can be found here.

To take part in the event, however, you will need access to a gravel or cyclocross bike, camping equipment, tools for roadside repairs, a way of navigating yourself and some money to buy us a beer!
