Event description

Description

A unique and exclusive opportunity to experience a day out riding in the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors with Simon Warren, the man who literally wrote the book on them! Enjoy a day out in the hills in style with everything provided for you, including a team mechanic, lunch stop and prizes along the way!

Here's Simon's description of the route:

"Whenever I am tasked with building a big ride in the North Yorks Moors it is always a case of how many climbs can I fit in. With so many killer hills, so much 25% and 30% gradient, I’m like a kid in a candy store, wanting to cram in as much as possible. Alas, due to the way the roads fall, you would be looking at a 300km ride to bag all my favourites so some editing has to be done and what I have here I think is the perfect day out. Ticking off gems such as Blakey Bank, Sleights Moor, Caper Hill, White Horse Bank and of course Rosedale Chimney it’s going to be one hell of a day on two wheels, most of which will be spent deep in the pain cave."

89 miles / 9,071ft ascent

The ride is suitable for keen cyclists of all abilities, you don’t have to be a hardcore hill climber, you just need to enjoy the challenge of classic Yorkshire climbs, whatever pace you go up them. Riders will be grouped according to estimated pace, so you will be riding with people of your ability.

Yorkshire Velo Tours are supporting the ride and the entry fee entitles you to:

  • Pre-ride briefing from Simon
  • Ride in small groups, Yorkshire Velo Tours ride leaders - no one gets left behind!
  • Prizes to be awarded by Simon, including fastest climber and most gutsy and determined rider!
  • OTE nutrition
  • Lunch stop (food and drink)
  • Mechanical / vehicle back up for whole ride

This is a small event with plenty of opportunity to get to know other like minded cyclists and enjoy the day as a group experience.

Max number of riders: 30
