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 British Cycling Federation.
The West Riding Classic ticket price (£26.00) includes unlimited tea and coffee before, during and after the sportive for all the riders and their support team. A feed station provides free nourishment and refreshment of real homemade soups and parkin – we think it’s the best feed station in the UK - and plenty of challenging climbing. The 75 miles extra-long route has 2,200 metres of vertical ascent.
The sixth edition of the West Riding Classic is the same weekend as The Tour de Yorkshire arrives in Settle so riders can enjoy being a spectator at great event on the Sunday.
