The Otley Sportive will return with three rides on the 14th September 2013.

  • Short (12 miles)
  • Medium (40 miles)
  • Long (70 miles)

 

The short ride head along the River Wharfe from Otley to Ilkley and back.

 

The medium and long rides head into the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Climb up the valley and you will be rewarded with some of the most beautiful countryside Yorkshire has to offer. 

 

For 2013 the Medium ride will be more balanced than 2012 - less climbing and slightly more miles really makes this ride a good all-rounder.

 

And the Long route will have changes too - a change of route to allow the regulars a change of scenary.  Hitting around the 70 mile mark with some great climbs to challenge each of our riders.  However a real ride not to be missed!

 

For all our rides we will ensure they have great signage, feedstops and support vehicles.

Medium route map

Posted 26/10/2012

After much discussion, we have opted for a 40 mile fairly flat route for the medium ride this year.  This route is designed to challenge individuals who have been taking part in our Social Series and are planning for a annual event to take part in.  
The route is able to view here:  http://connect.garmin.com/course/2332360
