OC-49 Swaledale and Buttertubs

Reeth, Yorkshire, England

Hilly - Official UK Climbs

Starting in Reeth, ride eastwards along the sometimes steeply rolling Swaledale before tackling the mighty Buttertubs pass (Official Climbs #49). Admire the views over vertiginous dip on your left hand side after the first crest on Buttertubs; this is a brief opportunity for you to rest your legs before the final climb to the summit with the steepest section of all at nearly 20%. Keep going as hard as you can until you reach the cattle grid. "I do love an early morning ride, Mr Bond". "Well, I'm an early riser myself".
