Event Summary

Event Overview

The West Riding Classic

£26.00 | 33, 65 & 75 miles | 30th April 2016

“Great route, great food, great vibe”

The West Riding Classic is a 33, 60 and 75 mile sportive in the Yorkshire Dales. A non-competitive road cycle ride over the beautiful hills and valleys of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This is a truly beautiful ride with something for everyone including first time sportive riders, intermediate riders and serious athletes.

What they say:

“A must-do on the sportive calendar, this 33, 65 and 75 mile sportive takes on Yorkshire’s most iconic roads and climbs in beautiful scenery. Exploiting the Yorkshire Dales’ finest cycling roads, the best feed station in the UK offering a unique, friendly, authentic experience”.

The 75 miles extra-long route has 2200 metres of vertical ascent.
