LEGENDARY YORKSHIRE DALES ON DIVERGE

THE ULTIMATE GETAWAY VEHICLE

Winter riding once meant pulling an old road or ‘cross bike out of the shed, dusting off the cobwebs, and mounting some sluggish winter tires and a set of mudguards. The entire act was merely one of survival, something to maintain a base of fitness, and perhaps sanity, through the short, dark days. But times have changed. We’ve focused on innovation to help riders thrive in any conditions, letting us enjoy riding year-round wherever the road takes us. So, when we head to Britain’s Yorkshire Dales National Park in the depths of winter, we know exactly what bike to reach for, the Specialized Diverge—The Ultimate Getaway Vehicle.

Located in northern England, the Yorkshire Dales contains more than 800 square miles of rolling green hills with a few rugged mountains poking out above them. Cows and sheep graze everywhere. Quaint stone buildings dot the pastures and give way to the occasional village where everyone knows each other by name. It’s quintessential English countryside that offers a fantastic breadth of terrain to explore on the S-Works Diverge.

Over two days in these glorious Yorkshire hills, home to so much cycling history, we rode along the scenic Settle-to-Carlisle train line, in the shadow of the Ribblehead Viaduct and its 24 massive stone arches rising 104 feet above the remote moorland, and over the challenging climbs of the legendary Three Peaks Cyclocross race.

But it wasn't all day in the saddle, across these snowy moors. We enjoyed the cobbled streets of the quaint towns dotted across the English countryside, like Hawes, home to small, cozy cafes and famous Wensleydale cheese. Of course, it wasn’t long before the Yorkshire Dales called us out to play across the snowy fields and on the slopes of the infamous Fleet Moss Climb.
