About the Event

Info for Riders

The 65 Roses Spring Classic recreates the thrill of a typical Belgian classic. Leaving from Cudworth we head along the flat roads and quiet lanes of South and West Yorkshire. There are no big hills in this, but there will be plenty of bumps and bounces as we find the narrow lanes that on a quiet Sunday in early March will test the toughness of the riders. As extra excitement, the course will be split into sectors (Paris Roubaix style) that count down. Each of these sectors will be set up on Strava for the day so that Strava users will be able to measure their performance. There is extra satisfaction in knowing that you have supported the fight against Cystic Fibrosis through your entry fee and also any additional sponsorship that you might raise. Included within the price of your ride is a complimentary breakfast courtesy of the Lakeside café at Askern www.65Roses-springclassic.co.uk
