There is no such thing as an easy long route with Velo29 and the 106 mile option in GYS is no exception.
It’s a totally new route for 2021, heading East to Scarborough for a rare visit to the coast.
We head North East via the Howardian Hills which are stunning but lumpy. There are 5,000 ft of vert on this long route so it’s not an easy day in the saddle.
3 feed stops along the way, all well stocked of course.
The route back from The Coast twists through some gorgeous little villlages all the way back to York. Nothing too serious, the work is done and it’s speed we are looking for here. 40km of delightful flats, finish the Sportive season at high speed!
