    Exclamation PETROL

    A couple of us have been up to Dent today and something that struck me, which I'd overlooked was..............Petrol

    There isn't any




    Nearest is Sedbergh, which is a 30 minute round trip (narrow lanes) - according to Google

    So make sure you have full tanks, before you enter Dentdale

    If you're coming from the East & North, fillup at Hawes (closes Fri night at 5.30pm, weekends 9-5pm)

    If you're coming from West and North, fillup at Sedbergh or Settle

    If you're coming from the south, fillup at Settle

    Also there are no cash point facilities in Dent either, so get supplies

    On my rides we will fillup at Hawes on the Sat/Sun afternoon before entering Dentdale

    If you forget, filling with fuel is not a 5 min trip

    Just a reminder

    Better than pushing..............

    I will be filling up in Hawes both days, on my rides and supporting a local business, without places like these - petrol would be a chore, for everyone

    The man makes a fortune with all the small tanked sports bikes that only have 100 mile range !
    However, piss taking aside, i do fill up there myself when passing through usually as i have been too lazy to fill up somewhere cheaper en route.

    petrol.

    For those thinking of joining my ride you are going to need at least twenty miles in your tank
    as was not planning on going via either Sedbergh or Hawes.
    Will be going through Kirkby Stephen which has fuel. I will make sure we pass a fuel station on the way back aswell
    Sedbergh has cash points, Indian and chinese take aways a chip shop and small for real adventure ride outs.

    Don't forget to buy the wonderful Wensleydale and Cranberry cheese in Hawes. Also there's a shop that sells a mature cheese called Top Shelf, wow. I was recently walking in Sedbergh and have relations in West Witton so quite familiar with the area.
    I would love to have gone to the Dent Event but I'm on a cruise. This is not a piss take on The Bear, I am actually on a cruise. Maybe next year

    For those joining the ' 21 Dales' run it will be 85mls before a fuel stop at Masham.

    I will stop again in Hawes on the way back if folks need to top up for the Sunday.

    Just a thought

    With a good number of old 1150's attending, should we get BMW recovery on stand by with extra staff and tow trucks ???

    1150s were attending events around Hawes long before the financiers at BMW thought of something new and will continue long after

    Not permanently manned at weekends now, but they have a card based Pay @ Pump which is quite quaint and not at all like Tesco's

    Fuel at Aysgarth now, station has re-opened

    There's no WiFi and no 'phone signal in Dent Cookie .... part of the charm of the place

    There is limited WiFi on the campsite, up near the main toilet block near the farm, and there's WiFi in both The George and Dragon and The Sun Inn pubs

    Adventure.GS
    Tours, training or custom made earplugs ... it's all here.
