Yorkshire has become synonymous with UK cycling thanks to the Tour de France, Tour de Yorkshire and the World Champs 2019. So we thought it was about time we made the trip north to see what all the fuss was about!
Yorkshire Velo Tours are the experts in cycling in Yorkshire, so we're incredibly pleased to be partnering with them on this trip. They will organise our accommodation in Ilkley (map link), professionally led group rides and eating and drinking options.
Group rides in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales on Saturday and Sunday morning will be split by ability level and distance/elevation will be set accordingly. The terrain is tough and these 'challenge rides' are aimed at intermediate and advanced cyclists. If you are unsure of your level please email us (below). You can read a guide to cycling in the area HERE
Climbs like Malham Cove and Littondale await those who want to do the hilly routes (there are shorter and flatter routes for anyone who wants). You can read our 'route description' blog here - Yorkshire Route Guide
