At 75km it’s not the shortest of our short route but at this time of the year and with all those Summer miles 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 East we soon find ourselves on the stunning roads through leafy villages like Sheriff Hutto as roll into the Howardian Hills. We reach the outdoor feed at the half way point 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 West via Stamford Bridge as we twist our way back to York where a BBQ Sausage and refreshments await!
