The Yorkshire Classic

Saturday 10th April 2021 | York Auction House

Our Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With four routes to choose from and nothing too technical we would love to see as many riders joining us for one of our Classic events as possible.  

Starting just outside the walled city of York our four Yorkshire Classic Routes showcase the glorious areas of both North Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire. 

The long route takes you up and over enough vertical ascent to give your legs a true taste of the area, whilst our Rook ride at only 142m of climbing is perfect for anyone wishing to explore the area for the very first time on two wheels. 

The toughest climb of the ride is a short and sharp 1.9km burst with an average of 6.5% as you come out of the village of Leavening. Negotiate that, and the rest is 'rolling' through the beautiful countryside Yorkshire has to offer. 

Of course you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal, beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and OTE sports. 

We’ll be back in Yorkshire for our Tour series event in September but for now we hope to see you in April for our Classic series event
