    The fifth stage is one of the longest and most rewarding of the whole trail. Crossing the breadth of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the route follows the River Swale out from Keld before climbing the famous Oxnop Scar road, and descending sharply over the other side to the beautiful Dales towns of Askrigg and Bainbridge.

    From here you join Cam High Road, and ancient Roman road that'll test even the most accomplished riders. It's often remarked, 'built by the romans, not maintained since' which will give you a clue to the surface of this stretch.

    From the summit of Cam High Road, the route then descends much more gently down towards the stunning Ribblehead Viaduct on more manageable dirt doubletrack. The view from here on a clear day is a spectacular one, so make the most of it!

    The second, and equally impressive old road of the day is Salter Fell (also known as Hornby Road) which covers nearly 12 miles (19 km) of pure joy.

    Also home to the Pendle Witches Way hiking route, this high and remote road disintegrates into rocky, puddle-ridden and undulating doubletrack, through expansive moorland roamed by small herds of beautiful Belted Galloway cows. Human traces are few and far between up here, only dropping down into the Trough of Bowland with it's many quaint villages will you come back to civilisation.

    Head to Gisburn on the road to finish the day, with a good number of pubs, eateries and places to spend the night.
