The seven events start in March 2018 and run each month through to September.
Each unique routes is designed to allow cyclists the full Yorkshire Dales experience, featuring roads used in the Tour de France and the Tour de Yorkshire that will also be ridden again in World Road Championships in 2019.
The Yorkshire Velo Tours Challenge Ride events are ‘guided rides’ where all riders benefit from a pre-ride bike check, a support vehicle and team mechanic and ride in a small group with a dedicated ride leader. There is also a carefully chosen cafe stop.
The rides all start and finish in the cycling-mad town of Ilkley and take riders over classic climbs like Fleet Moss, Malham Cove and Park Rash and a ride to the Druid’s Temple near Masham. The distances are comparable with a medium length hilly sportive and will present riders with a challenging route as well as a true taste of Yorkshire.
Cost is £40 with the option of a weekend package (2 days cycling / 2 nights B&B) from £220pp
