The Three Peaks Classic is a sportive through the glorious and picturesque Yorkshire Dales. The routes are around the famous three peaks of Yorkshire; Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside & Ingleborough. We pass through Ribblehead, with its famous viaduct as well as Dent and Ingleton. One of the highlights is Thornton Lane from Dentdale to Ingleton with its stunning scenery and short but brutal climb. Starting on the edge of the National Park near Settle, we are offering a choice of two routes. The longer goes via Dent, while the shorter still visits all the iconic locations, but misses out the climbs over to and out of the Dent valley.

Our sportive also supports a great cause. We are donating a proportion of your entry fee to Henshaws Society for Blind People. Henshaws is a specialist charity providing expert support, advice and training to anyone affected by sight loss. They also work with people with other disabilities, and because sight loss and disability affects family, friends and colleagues, they work with them too. Their services run in the North of England, with centres and communities in Harrogate, Knaresborough, Manchester, Merseyside and Newcastle.

Henshaws is a registered charity, Number 221888

If you would like to fundraise for Henshaws, please request a fundraising pack

Therefore you can be sure that not only will you get an outstanding day in the Dales, but you will be helping to support the work of an excellent local charity.

In addition to this, being a registered sportive with British Cycling means a proportion of your entry fee goes to support investment in the future of cycling in the UK at all levels.
