Yorkshire Trike Tours
Jason and Judith, proud owners of the multiple award winning Yorkshire Trike Tours, have spent many years developing these amazing chauffeur driven Boom Mustang motor trike tours, throughout the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park. Think Billy Connolly route 66... well that's us!
They have designed all their tour offerings to include local historic and famous landmarks, monuments and tourist attractions located all around the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park. All tours are accompanied by live commentary, via the on-board intercom system, directly to ear pieces that are hidden away in your helmets. Cruising the tracks and roads, they tell their customers all about local historical facts, dates, Dales names, even how it all came about. They also include funny Yorkshire folk stories, wars, ruined castles, abbeys, buildings and so much more. The helmets are also fitted with microphones too, to enable passengers to ask the chauffeur any questions relating to the Dales or ask for explainations of any of the facts in greater detail or just whether "is it time for a coffee stop?"
Take a virtual trike tour with Jason.

Photoshoot with Yorkshire's famous #calendargirls back in June 2015, one of the best days of my life. Very proud Yorkshireman and still smiling.... Now you've watched the film, probably enjoyed the stage play too, it's time for the #garybarlow & #timfirth musical, opens in the West End on the 28th Jan. Best of luck to all the cast from all at YTT, it'll be totally awesome. Tricia Stewart, Jude & I look forward to coffee soon.

As well as trikes, my other passion is our narrowboat called EMMA. A place where we can step off the world to think, relax and contemplate our very next move in business.

The Yorkshire Dales - What makes them so special? There are 52 valleys or dales , cut by rivers, each distinctive in character and with their own sense of place. Look out for these features that make the Yorkshire Dales special. 1. Unfenced roads across open moorlands with dramatic panoramas across the landscape and into the valleys below, and hay meadows, rich in herbs and wildflowers 2. The high winding Butterrubs Pass and heather tops: see the wonderful seasonal colour changes from brown to green, purple & white. 3. Caves such as: Gaping Gill System, Kingsdale Master System, Alum Pot, Hull Pot and Show caves: Ingleborough & White Scar Caves, Ingleton, How Stean Gorge, Stump Cross Cavern. 4. Stone-built field barns: Field barns or laithes are a distinctive feature of the Yorkshire Dales landscape. Barns were used as a combination of cattle housing and fodder storage. You’ll notice that most are in fields and hay meadows, away from main farm buildings. Hay was stored on the first floor, ready to feed the cattle on the lower floor. Muck from the cattle could then be spread on the hay meadows ready for the next crop. This saved farmers the effort of carrying hay or muck to and from the main farmstead. Before the early 18th century many of these had wooden cruck frames and a heather thatched roof. You can see a fine example in Nidderdale at Grimwith High Laithe near to Grimwith Reservoir. In places like Upper Swaledale where winters can be more severe, you’ll also notice some hogg houses, built to over-winter young sheep or hogs. 5. Spectacular waterfalls, such as Hardraw Force, Aysgarth Falls, Cautley Spout and Thornton Force 6. Mysterious ruins and remains of the lead mining and lime industry, particularly just below Coldstones Cut in Nidderdale and the Hoffman Kiln between Langcliffe and Stainforth 7. Millstone grit outcrops such as the Three Peaks and sandstone tors like Brimham Rocks. 8. A sense of tranquillity, enhanced by the natural sounds of wind, water and birdsong and an amazing night sky, with dramatic effects from the moon, stars, and planets 9. Sheep, sheep, sheep everywhere! 10. Dry-stone walls: Tom Lord of Lower Winskill Farm, Langcliffe has over seven miles of dry-stone walls on his farm, some of which date back to the 13th century and are believed to have been built to deter wolves! The new dry-stone wall at Layhead Farm Cottages was built by 12 women in 2008. Some of the features you’ll spot within the walls include cripple holes, sheep creeps & throughs. Merry Christmas.

If you read just one thing this Christmas, please may it be this... Today I had the pleasure of taking a mum and her son out on a trike tour. This blog does not include any names or photographs, it's all about the story. Let me tell you about today's trike tour. I met a mum and her son at a start location in the Yorkshire Dales, her son, middle aged now, was high on the autistic scale with no verbel communication skills, so everything had to be done with eye contact and a well placed pat on the back. Mum knew it would time and patience to get him on board. It took both of us over 15mins to get him on the trike with seat his seat belt fastened. Getting the helmet and gloves on took another 5 minutes. Mum, a biker herself, then quickly geared up and jumped onboard. Now we were off on our one hour trike adventure. The time passed so quickly, with mum and son experiencing some quality and precious time together, where they just enjoyed the freedom of triking which enabled each to seemly forget about the daily struggles. Finishing our tour, her son didn't want to get off the trike! He just sat there with a cheeky grin on his face, obviously he enjoyed it so much. We did get him off, eventually, and back into mum's car. Mum came back over and gave me the biggest hug, looked me straight the eyes and thanked me for making her son smile again, something she hadn't seen for a longtime. I must confess at that moment to having a tear in my eye. I waved them both goodbye watching them leave. I climbed on board my trike, put on my helmet, sat there thinking of what I had just experienced and then sobbed uncontrollably into my helmet, thinking how cruel life can be, but also how joyous life can be. I love my job.........
