1000: Sportive Start

This fantastic 62mile sportive features CLOSED ROAD hilltop finish on the infamous Boltby Bank (or Sneck Yate Bank) which is 0.7miles in length at an average of 13% with a maximum gradient of 25%. The current Strava KOM is 4:35 which is an average of 10mph. Dash to the line whilst we stream you live to the world from drone and motorbike cameras! Before this, there are some stunning roads through the Howardrian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and visits to Castle Howard and Ampleforth Abbey. The Sportive will have a super feed at Hovingham half way round so you have nothing to worry about.

Once you have finished it will be up to you to make your own way back to the event HQ. There are several ways but the nicest and safest way is here and includes the descent of White Horse bank This route is 15miles DOWN. You can, of course, go back down Boltby Bank or Sutton Bank (but we don’t advise this)

1800: Evening meal & Bar including timings for today and video highlights on the BIG screen
