Event Summary

Event Overview

The Blue Giraffe Bicycles Falling Leaves Sportive features a new route for 2014. There are two options on the day, a 35 mile flat route and a 55 mile challenge route with 856 metres of climbing. Both rides utilise the same route initially, splitting after the first feed station. The challenge route heads to the climb to the village of Osmotherley and then on over the moors via a series of climbs to Hawnby and arrives at the top of Newgate bank. The route then heads down Bilsdale to climb Clay Bank and return to the start. Both routes will be fully signed with our ‘bgb’ arrows. The start area has toilet and changing facilities. Our mechanic will also be on hand to help with any last minute problems. A selection of tyres and inner tubes along with other products will also be available to purchase. After signing on you will be given a number to be displayed on the front of your bike and a complementary gel. Both the routes have feed stations where you will be able to top up water bottles and grab some food to keep you going. We also will provide on route mechanic support and a broom waggon. We pride ourselves on the friendly atmosphere so after signing in at the end of your ride please stay a while and enjoy refreshments and a chat. You will find a full route description, map and on the day details on our web site www.bluegiraffebicycles.com

If you enter all 3 road sportive events run by Blue Giraffe Bicycles in 2014 you will be eligible for a 20% discount off the price off your next bike service. (Excludes parts)
