About the Event

Info for Riders

The White Rose Classic offers three challenging routes which will take you into the heart of the stunning Yorkshire Dales. Depending on the route you choose you will tackle some of the iconic climbs which have made Yorkshire a cycling mecca. All routes start and end in Ilkley and none are to be taken lightly!

The Short one - This route will take up and down the stunning Wharfedale Valley before returning to HQ - you’ll tackle some lumps and bumps along the way and stop at the first feed stop in Grassington before returning to HQ for a well earned drink and food. This route is suitable for all levels of a sportive rider.

The Challenge  - We will take further in to the dales on this route where you will tackle some well known climbs in the dales, you will stop in Grassington to refuel before heading on to Settle for the final refuel opportunity before tackling a climb out of settle and then heading back to HQ via a well known local climb just before the finish line. This route is suitable for those looking to step up to a route that offers a mix of rolling roads with a few climbs thrown in.

The Epic one - This is a challenging route that takes you deep in to the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and is not for the faint hearted. This route will challenge the most accomplished sportive rider as you head deep in to the dales, tackle some famous climbs before returning to HQ. There are 3 feed stops for you to refuel at, Grassington, Hawes and Settle before you head back to HQ - when you cross the finish line you will feel a sense of pride and accomplishment and look forward to your free post ride meal. This route is not recommended for those not comfortable doing 100+ miles.
