Guided motorcycle tour in the Yorkshire Dales & English Lakes.

If you have not toured before, our guided weekend tours are an ideal way to try it for the first time. These are also enjoyed by our regular customers who like to meet up at the end of the season to meet friends old and new and get an indication of  what we have planned for 2020.

For this tour we have arranged a long weekend at our favourite hotel situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and English Lakes. We are starting the tour on a Thursday, ending on a Sunday to avoid the usual weekend traffic. If you have never toured before this is an ideal opportunity to try it for the first time.

The tour will be fully guided, but will have no fixed itinerary allowing us to roam wherever the mood takes us. For those that want a more relaxed weekend, there is the opportunity to "do their own thing" – either on bike or by car - your guide will be able to advise you on some lovely routes and places to visit.

Whatever you decide, you will be sure of a great weekend, as we will meet-up each evening in the hotel bar before sitting down to an excellent evening meal.

Tour prices are inclusive of the following
* 3 Nights en-suite accommodation
* 3 Evening meals (vegetarian option available)
* 3 Full regional Breakfasts
* 2 Guided tours
* Services of experienced Tour Guide

Your accommodation for the weekend is a 3 star hotel conveniently situated between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District  making it ideal for touring the fantastic biking areas ranging from the Forest of Bowland to the Northern Pennines. The hotel has become a firm favourite with with customers and ourselves alike due to its friendliness, comfort and great food.  All bedrooms are en-suite with ‘phone, TV and drinks-making facilities. Your stay includes all evening meals and full regional breakfasts.

Thursday 3rd October -  We avoid the Friday night rush by travelling today to our 3 star hotel on the outskirts of the beautiful Lake District, arriving in time for a traditional evening meal and a get-to-know-you session with your fellow riders and Guide for the weekend.

Friday 4th October - Our tours depart after breakfast, and are led by an experienced guide, so not only is no map-reading required. but you can be sure that you are seeing the best scenery, the right places and enjoying some great biking roads. Many people are apprehensive about riding in a group, but we use a simple ‘drop off’ system which allows you to travel at your own pace. All our Guided Tours are very relaxed, we do ride all day, but there will be a leisurely lunch break and stops for refreshments, photo opportunities or just to stretch your legs. We will return to the hotel around 1630 hrs. 

Although the tour is fully guided, you are of course, welcome to explore on your own - your guide will be able to advise you on things to see and do in the area.

Saturday 5th October - today will be a repeat of yesterday’s format, our destination will be decided on the day, but with the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Forest of Bowland and Northern Pennines on our door step we will be spoilt for choice.   

Sunday 6th August    The tour finishes after breakfast, after which, we bid our farewells and return home.
