Welcome to ride2stride

ride2stride is a festival of walks, talks and music along the fabulous Settle-Carlisle railway line.

It's a week long celebration of the wonderful landscape and culture of the western Dales and Eden Valley.

The festival is made up of lots of events and activities and things will be happening along the length of the line. Walks will be led from stations by experienced walk leaders. Speakers will share their local knowledge and love of the area, and the pubs will be buzzing with music and song.

ride2stride is for everyone who loves the Yorkshire Dales. Whether you travel to an event by train, live along the line or book your holiday to take advantage of the festival, we're sure you'll have a great time.

Dogs on Walks

In regards to the question of dogs on ride2stride Festival Walks, please note: NO DOGS other than registered assistance dogs, will be accepted on ride2stride walks.

We know how much people enjoy walking with their dogs, however, spring is a crucial time of year for wildlife and livestock in the Yorkshire Dales. Fields are full of young lambs and newly turned out cattle and the fells are home to ground nesting birds. The festival attracts large numbers of walkers and this decision has been taken In the interest of safety and enjoyment for everyone. It does not affect the walks led by the participating organisations for the rest of the year.

We hope you will understand and respect this decision and we look forward to welcoming walkers to ride2stride 2019.
