Ride Yorkshire Sportive

Event Venue: Thirsk Racecourse, Station Road, Thirsk, North Yorkshire, YO7 1QL

The Ride Yorkshire Sportive is the second of our Yorkshire events for 2020, this time starting from Thirsk Racecourse. The World Road Cycling Championship visited Yorkshire in 2019 so this is your chance to follow in the champs tyre tracks and explore God's Own Country from your bike. 

Starting out north and heading through the Vale of Mowbray, the Ride Yorkshire Sportive covers some easy miles on the gently rolling terrain until you reach the market town of Northallerton. Here, riders will head west to cross the river Swale and head on over to Leeming Bar before turning south.

Just outside Carthorpe, our course splits for the first time where the short route riders continue on the flat miles east, while the standard and epic riders push out further south and onto Masham. Once at Masham, the standard and epic group push even further south for some punishing climbs and fantastic scenery.

North Yorkshire Cycling

Riders on these routes will skirt the edge of Leighton Reservoir at which point the real climbing begins, heading straight for Ouster Bank trig point. A technical descent awaits after the summit as you drop down into Nidderdale via the village of Lofthouse, where you will be rewarded for your efforts with a ride along the river Nidd and the Gouthwaite Reservoir all the way to Pateley Bridge. Epic riders continue south here for a particularly challenging climb up Red Brae Bank, while standard riders take a short sharp climb through the centre of this beautiful Yorkshire town. Both routes reconvene before heading north up over Pateley Moo,r en route back to Masham to rejoin the rest of the ride. Now on the home straight, riders can expect some easy miles as they head east for the finish in Thirsk.

With a mixture of climbs and technical descents, the Ride Yorkshire Sportive has everything you'd expect a cycle ride through North Yorkshire to have. Why not test yourself against the terrain and soak up its beauty by entering one of the three routes on offer. Consistently rated highly by our previous riders, you won't be disappointed.

Times and Awards
Times and Awards

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing award you achieved, will be displayed on our results page. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.

What our customers say about us

  • I would just like to say a big thank you to all the marshals and support mechanics on the Wattbike Falkirk Ride on Sunday; the guys were absolutely amazing. We had several issues en route including punctures, cramps, a crash and ever-decreasing morale, but these guys supported us right to the bitter end and got us through the epic course. I have never attended such a well-organised event; even the signage was spot on. So well done and thank you!

  • Did the Watt Bike 40 mile Sportive today, had a lovely time. Great route on quiet roads with challenging hills, all well signposted and a lovely atmosphere. The marshalls & staff deserve a special thank you for standing out for hours in truly gruesome weather. The feed station was well stocked with all needs catered for, the bike wash stocked up with Muc-off products and the soup at the end were the icing on the cake. Southwell racecourse had brilliant facilities. Shame about the weather being freezing cold & sooo wet but totally worth it, had a lot of fun. Thank you to all involved.

  • Well organised, great routes and good support leads to excellence bike rides.

  • Had one amazing experience. My first 100 miles on the bike in amazing route, friendly staff. Really recommend UK cycling events. Can not wait for the next one.

  • A great day out with great staff and well planned.
