Fleet Moss (OC-50)

Hawes, Yorkshire, England

Hilly - New

The highest road in Yorkshire, this Official UK Climbs #50 is a gut buster! Starting in the peaceful market town of Hawes we soon hit the first 17% slope at Gayle where the road then levels off a little before reaching the steeper slopes at 17% and topping out at 23% near the top. The long ascent is always in view so you can see what is to come and can be psychological! Once at the summit and looking south, you will see Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent (the three highest peaks in Yorkshire). The road then drops into the beautiful Langstrothdale, the upper valley of the River Wharfe, and finishes at Yockenthwaite.
