Following on from the Tour de France’s Grand Depart in Yorkshire, cycling in this part of the world has never been more popular.
Several of the Tour de France, Tour de Yorkshire and World Championship routes run through Swinton Estate, an area know for its challenging elevation and beautiful scenery.
With 20,000 acres of farmland and moorland, Swinton Estate provides a wonderful base for a cycling trip, whether for a day, weekend or a short break. It offers a variety of inclines and terrain, from steep moorland ascents to winding country lanes, all with incredible views across rolling Dales countryside.
While you are on the road and fancy a refreshment, we can recommend the Terrace coffee shop and restaurant at the Swinton Country Club and Spa, with bike racks and lovely garden seating area. A few miles up the hill from there is the Bivouac Café at Swinton Bivouac, where the beautiful views over the moorland Dales are well worth the climb!
