At 62km it’s not the shortest of our short route but at this time of the year and with all those miles on Zwift in your legs, we wanted to give you an end of season challenge!

We get onto quiet Yorkshire lanes as soon as we can and as we head North we soon find ourselves on the stunning roads through leafy villages like Sheriff Hutton and Terrington as roll into the Howardian Hills. We reach the outdoor feed at Hovingham bang on 30km 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!

We glide South via Castle Howard on an arrow-straight road for 10km before twisting our way back to York where a BBQ Sausage and refreshments await!
