About the Event

Info for Riders

The Four Winds Cycle Sportive will see riders take on routes on all four sides of the market town of Driffield. Riders on the 141km (88m) Four Winds route will start on the flat lakelands in the East before tackling the hillier North section centred around Langtoft. From there it’s out West to the familiar territory of Wetwang and Huggate before the highly scenic South route takes you through some beautiful Wolds villages. But don’t be deluded by the attractive surroundings. This is a long, constantly undulating route, and you’ll be on your bike for a minimum of 5 hours, turning this ride out into a real Sunday challenge. Our shorter 86km (54m) Two Winds route covers the best parts of just the West and South routes. While shorter, this route still has its challenges, and will appeal to those cyclists who like a challenge but who also appreciate the passing landscape. Both these rides offer everything a cyclist could want; fast, undulating roads, beautiful countryside, and a choice of physical challenges
