GPS for Hawes area
This has most of the Hawes stuff on, if it’s a bit long it can be shortened at east section.
It can be done in either direction, this way you avoid the push up the penine bridle way out of Hawes.

Anyone got any good GPS downloads for the Hawes area of the Yorkshire Dales ? I’ll be driving from Stokesley North Yorkshire for a few hours night riding tomorrow night and just fancied somewhere different. I have a garmin edge 800 so could use a GPX or anything from garmin connect. Cheers in advance.Posted 5 years ago
It sounds like the perfect place to do a night ride a long way from home in a place you’ve never been. I’m guessing that the scenery will be stunning, a friend of mine has a lot of family in Hardraw and I remember it looking pretty nice as a kid when I visited with him.Posted 5 years ago
It looks as though there might be some quite promising tracks coming off that roman road which could make some nice descents or climbs too. One step at a time, I’ll head up there tonight to get a feel for the place. Cheers guys.christhetallSubscriber
Had a grand day out around Wensleydale a few weeks back – 46 miles with lunch at the cheese factory – cracking !!!
Route partly based on the Dodd Fell route above, but couldn’t decide whether to go up or down the Roman road, so did both.
From Bainbridge up RR to the top, through 2 or 3 gates, then BW on right (the 2nd of the two) which takes you back and then down to Buttersett. From Hawes I went up the Pennine Way – it’s the red dashes on the Dodd Fell map. This was a great climb, sttep but entirely rideable (though that was before recent heavy rain), but then flattens out so you get this long (5 or 6 miles) section along a stunning ridge before the screaming descent back down the RR
(My ride also included Castle Bolton and Stake Allotments, but this middle section was the highlight)Posted 5 years ago

You’ve given me too much info and now my head is fried. Which is the best way to do the loop? from bainbridge around and back to hawes or from hawes around and into bainbridge then hawes.
I like the look from google earth of the figure 8 you described but for tonight I’ll stick to a loop ( darkness will get me ) but which way round?
