Now in its third year, the 600km route has become a favourite for riders and racers alike. The route follows gravel tracks, bridleways and some quiet roads to cross from the west coast to east coast and back of England through the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors national parks. It offers a shorter course for riders who are just starting to try bikepacking and is specifically set to encourage and help newcomers as well as a platform for racers at the pointy end of the 600km course. The route crosses the home town and countryside of Mike Hall and the ride very much encourages his ethos of people just doing their best and being kind to every other rider. The event is free and has a very broad spectrum of riders from previous Tour Divide racers, National Record holders through to riders for who this is their first such ride.
