Road Cycling Challenge Ride: Norwood Edge, Arncliffe and LangbarWheatley Arms, Ilkley | Wheatley Lane | LS29 8PP
May 19 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Unashamedly based on the route of Ilkley Cycling Club’s brilliant annual sportive ride in the summer, the White Rose Classic, this 74 mile ride covers much of the same ground, but throws in the awesome climb of the Cote de Arncliffe. The ride measures a few miles short of the ‘medium’ route, so is a great way to test yourself ahead of the White Rose Classic itself, being held on 24th June 2018.
This ride is an exclusive individual guided and supported experience similar to a ‘sportive’ ride in that there is a set route, but are not timed. What you get over and above a typical sportive is a pre-ride bike check, a support vehicle and team mechanic, the benefit of riding in a small group with your own dedicated ride leader and a top café stop. The rides are a great way of exploring new territory in the safe hands of the Yorkshire Velo Tours team and will be of interest to local riders as well as visitors to the area.
