Again, we woke up with rain ticking on our tent. Luckily everything, but our shoes, stayed dry during the night. Unlike a few other unlucky participants who got everything soaked and had a really bad night.

We created a gravel focused bikepacking route – partially inspired on the Dales Divide and the GBDURO – through the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District and the North Pennines. Since we […]
