Not for the faint hearted this 95-mile route is enough to challenge even the most seasoned of riders as you take in some of the classic climbs in Yorkshire. Crossing the Vale of York, we head for the most serious of climbs around – Rosedale Chimney Bank, can you get up without putting a foot down?
Gentle enough for most seasoned riders this 61-mile route crosses the Vale of York and heads into the beautiful countryside taking in Ampleforth Abbey, Wass, climbing out of Cuxwold and back over the to the Vale of York through the Howardian Hills.
A great way to start as a novice or young cyclist, this 29-mile route is challenging enough for a first time sportive or just to enjoy the scenery out of York itself. Some mild ‘undulations’ around the middle from Farrington are testing enough but won’t overstretch a new rider. Come ride your first sportive and raise some money for local charities.
