Ilkley Adventure Festival - Bikepacking Ride with Reyt Good Bike Club


Guided 2-day bikepacking adventure with Reyt Good Bike Club

Join us at Alpkit Ilkley on the 15th-16th October for an Autumnal 90km bikepacking adventure over two days, led by Reyt Good Bike Club. Part of our month-long 'Ilkley Adventure Festival' event series.

A guided 90km route heading into the Dales, on some of Yorkshires finest off-road. The ride will be a friendly pace, no one will be dropped and plenty of time to rest, take in the views and enjoy the ride.

How will the weekend pan out?

We’ll meet everyone in the group at 9am at Alpkit, Ilkley where we will provide you with breakfast and chat about our experience with bikepacking. A check over everyone bikes and make sure no one’s got any issues. If anyone has any questions or how to pack their bike up.

Let's ride!
Once we’re all ready to go we’ll head out to ride. From Ilkley we’ll make our way on road to Bolton Abbey, before crossing Barden Moor, up onto Mastilles lane and dropping into Kilsney where we will head to our campsite Kettlewell. Food will be provided on Saturday night the campsite.

Next morning
A chilled morning, pack up and eat our provided breakfast before making our way over to Appletreewick and Fewston reservoir then descending back into Ilkley via Middleton moor. Once back in Ilkley, there’ll be some refreshments ready to welcome you back in.
