Sadly, the decision has been taken to cancel this year's ride2stride Festival in light of the current Covid 19 crisis. We cannot continue with a walking and music festival run from public transport which attracts people from all over the country and indeed the world.

Thank you to all our ride2stride Walk Leaders, Musicians and Speakers for all your support and to all our ride2stride Friends who come to join us in our beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

Stay safe, stay well and we shall see you next year.

The dates will be April 27th to May 3rd 2021.

If you are self isolating in the Dales and would like walk suggestions, there are leaflets at Settle and Skipton Stations for walks on the Bentham line and round Ingleborough.

I recommend two books for self guided walks. Tony and Chris Grogan ''Dale's Rail Trails'', Hugh Stewart ''Hill walks from the Settle to Carlisle Railway stations'' and look on the Friends of Dalesrail and Friends of Settle and Carlisle walks websites for ideas from their cancelled walking programmes.

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.
