We wanted to give you a medium option without too many hills, something to get the miles in but be achievable with the shorter day yet still enjoy the gorgeous scenery, quiet roads and delightful villages on offer in this part of the World.

2 Feed stops where we enjoy the new Covid safe “Grab and Go” feed stops with all the delights of a Velo29 feed packed into a bag for you to take away and enjoy! We’ve also got Red Bull and High 5 to power you through the last half! It’s an outdoor feed, much the theme in this World we live in today.

On the way out to the feed, we hit some lumps as we plough through the Howardian Hills, an area of much beauty. The lumps aren’t too dramatic but they are steep, you’ll know when you arrive at the foot of them!

As always a hot BBQ sausage bun and refreshments await you back at the York Auction Mart.
