Event description

Description

Your chance to ride the best sections of the 2019 World Championships Mens Elite Road Race ahead of the actual race in September 2019. You will ride out through Wharfedale and take on the big climbs of Kidstones, Buttertubs pass and Grinton Moor. Then experience one of the flatter fast sections heading towards Masham before taking a scenic route back to the start point in Ilkley.

The route misses out some of the urban sections of the actual race route and also the finishing circuit in Harrogate as it is not rideable under usual traffic regulations.

Ride distance: 109 miles with 9,636ft ascent

Full route mapped on Strava available via our website

Key climbs:

Kidstones

Buttertubs Pass

Grinton Moor

NEW FOR 2019: Lunch now included in the price, choice of sandwiches, cakes and fruit + good quality coffee / yorkshire tea!

About YVT Challenge rides:

Our Challenge Rides are fully supported rides in the Yorkshire. The routes are incredibly varied with each one having its own very distinct character to show off the wide variety of terrain and scenery in the Yorkshire Dales and South Pennines.

The rides are an exclusive individual guided and supported experience similar to ‘sportive’ ride in that there is a set route, but are not timed. What you get over and above a typical sportive is a pre-ride bike check, a support vehicle and team mechanic, the benefit of riding in a small group with your own dedicated ride leader and a lunch. The rides are a great way of exploring new territory in safe hands of YVT and will be of interest to local riders as well as visitors to the area. We guarantee to give you an epic day out that will last long in your memory! If you are concerned about running out of energy on the ride, there are spaces available in the support vehicle, so you can hop on board if necessary.
