Without question one of the most amazing experiences available to a Sportive rider!

Ride on the amazing roads of Yorkshire on 4 stages across 3 days in May. We open on Saturday morning, pushed off down the start ramp of the prologue TT! 12km against the clock, streamed live to your friends and family at home. This year we start and finish the TT from Thirsk Race Course.

Back to the lodge for lunch whilst enjoying the highlights video of the TT then we hit a 70km Sprint Sportive road stage on some of the quietest roads you’ve ever ridden on. Dinner is served back at the lodge whilst we enjoy a Q&A on the stage with a pro rider.

Saturday takes us on a 100km roads stage with a closed road Mountain Top finish! We time you up the climb to declare a QOM and KOM! Again enjoy dinner back at the lodge and a Q&A with a Cycling Celebrity.

Sunday we complete our Tour of Yorkshire with a 160km road stage. Some incredible roads and big hills before we speed across the finish line and take to the stage for one of the best medals you’ll ever receive.

The 2021 edition of the event was the first and every rider declared it the best thing on a bike they had ever done! 2022 was just as good, everyone a wonderful tme! We had competitive riders, regular sportive riders, cycling fans who crave such an experience and people just wanting to have an amazing and challenging event on a bike. The family experience at the glamping was really special, the area has a lot to offer whilst the riders are out on the ride.

Only 200 places available for the 2022 event, book soon as it will sell out.
