The Yorkshire Tour

Saturday 5th June 2021 | Ripon Racecourse

The Yorkshire Tour is the first of our Tour Series events for 2021, so this is your first chance to ride big for the year. All routes start in North Yorkshire and will take in some spectacular climbs and classic road cycling routes. Whilst you might end the event exhausted, you certainly won’t be disappointed. 

Our Tour Series events are designed to give you the chance to ride in some of the most beautiful parts of the UK and challenge yourself to distances you wouldn’t do every weekend. 

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 look forward to seeing you on the start line in Yorkshire.

Bring your climbing gears as there are some tough hills to negotiate on these routes. Keep your focus on the descents as they can get slippery when wet.
