Yorkshire Dales Strava routes

Does anyone have any strava routes that I can use for an impending trip to the Yorkshire Dales, I will be staying in Harrogate. Looking for about 60mile routes. 
Thank you in advance

Rob T, Darren Burrett is your man for this! We stayed in the dales in 2017, near Wensleydale, and did 4-5 long rides with some savage climbs. I will check my strava for you

We stayed in Hawes at the foot of buttertubs.

From Harrogate you could ride out to Parley Bridge (nice cafe by the river) and the head up Greenhow hill, dropping into ilkey for Cow and Calf or Otley for Otley Chevin.

Alternatively from Patley Bridge go up Lofthouses to Masham and back via Ripon

If you drive to Hawes you can ride over plenty of climbs even taking on Tan Hill which has the highest pub in England (you do need to go over Buttertubs first)

Finally if you want as close an alpine climb as you can get in England head over to Knock in the Pennines and take on Great Dun Fell, 4.5 miles (with 700m gain) of climbing pleasure on a road to nowhere and usually no cars. Counting down the snow poles is fun.
