New date for 2021 - The Yorkshire lass sportive is to be held on the Sunday 15th August 2021.
It will be run from Carlton Lodge Activity Centre, Carlton Miniott, Thirsk, YO7 4NJ where the previous Yorkshire Lass sportives have been held.
For 2021 there will be new routes for the Yorkshire Lass sportive, we promise there will be amazing scenery and the same support with regards to well stocked feed stations, mechanical help and good signage. We will have motor bike marshalls going around the course looking after riders. We will also have ride angels from Yorkshire Cogs and Roses cycling club supporting riders on each route.
Not forgetting to mention the goody bags, medal, cake and a cuppa on your return to headquarters where you will also receive a rowdy warm Yorkshire welcome as you cross the finish line.
We will be back in 2021 running the sportive with help from Yorkshire Cogs & Roses Cycling Club. New name but same lovely bunch of lasses, You will see a lot of them dotted all over Yorkshire in the run up to our sportive, Just look out for them in the lovely Cogs & Roses Kit.
The kit was designed by our lovely Kit designers one of them being Fiona Burrell who has designed the 2021 sportive jersey that is available for sale, with a percentage of the proceeds going to our charities.
We will be raising funds in 2021 for Breast cancer care, Jo's cervical trust, Ovarian cancer action, Carlton Lodge bursary fund and Macmillan cancer support.
We have a very supportive Yorkshire Lass sportive Facebook page, where you can chat to other entrants and find out lots of useful information, don't worry if you are riding on your own you can also use it to find ladies to ride with.
We are very lucky as in we can also provide accommodation for the weekend at the sportive base, Carlton Lodge activity Centre. The accommodation is basic dormitory accommodation or we can also provide camping facilities at the Centre. "No need for such an early start, you can roll out of bed to the start line"
