EVENT POSTPONED: UPDATED 1 MAY 2020

It is with great sadness that we have today made the difficult but responsible decision to postpone this event, due to the ongoing situation regarding the Coronavirus.
We have continued to monitor government guidelines and therefore based on the latest information and in the interest of staff safety, rider safety, and putting the greater needs of the wider community at the forefront, it’s the most responsible thing to do. We ask for your patience while we evaluate the next steps in this ever-changing situation. We will aim to be in touch with you again via email regarding the ride credit, transfer or refund options available, during the week commencing 4th May 2020.
We hope you are all keeping well, and thank everyone for their support during this very difficult period, we can't wait to be back up and running again delivering the events that we all know you love.

From all at UK Cycling Events.



The Vale Velo Sportive is a mid-season sportive, taking you around the ever-popular cycling haven that is North Yorkshire. The course allows you to chip away at the miles while tackling occasionally testing terrain. With just over 3000ft of climbing on the standard route, this is a quick and speedy course, presenting to you some of the best views the Vale of York and the Yorkshire Wolds have to offer.

Cycling in North Yorkshire

Starting from the York Auction Centre, the course heads straight out onto the roads of the stunning North Yorkshire district, while also threading through the quaint and typically pretty villages of the area. First, the route bears east, taking you past the historic battleground of Stamford Bridge, before heading up to Low Callis Wold. At this point, riders of the short course split off and head north to re-join the course at Leavening, while standard route riders continue east to pass through North Dalton - soon to take their own path north towards the village of Wetwang. From here riders now turn west just after Sledmere to start to head for home, and as the finish closes in, two final climbs lay in wait before the long, gradual descent back to York.

The Vale Velo Sportive is ideal for those wanting to get some training in and, considering the distances, isn't too harsh on the legs. That said, there are a few nice and challenging climbs along the standard route, so don't partake thinking it will be a ride in the park. It's not. It's a ride through the stunning North Yorkshire countryside.
