On the longest Sunday of the year, 21 June, get out on yer bike and see the Yorkshire Dales like only a cyclist can. There are three challenging routes to choose from:
- Grassington Short Route - 49 miles. It's enough to get a good taste of why professional cycling races keep coming back to Yorkshire, but with an emphasis on steady enjoyment over punishing challenge.
- Settle Medium Route - 86 miles. This is a serious ride, but one that takes you into beautiful Silverdale, a quiet place just underneath Pen-Y-Ghent.
- Hawes Long Route - 122 miles. Ready for a tough Yorkshire challenge? The Long Route includes over 10,000 feet of climbing, but rewards you with spectacular views and long, fast descents.
The day starts and finishes in Ilkley where we put on a proper meal for riders, included with your registration fee. You can also purchase local beer on tap, freshly made ice cream and other delicacies while listening to live music at the after-ride party.
As a Club-run event, we've done everything for you to have a safe and enjoyable day out. Fully-signed routes, amply-stocked feed stations, and on-the-road support. All you have to do is register (https://whiteroseclassic.org.uk/reserve-your-place/) and turn up on the day.
