The 161 is the not so little brother of the 262 event. Still a HUGE challenge at 100 miles and for many the longest ride of the year.

We added the 161 route to make the day more accessible to more riders. Like the 262 it’s as flat a course as it can be, of course as with all Velo29 routes it’s by no means a bore, we’ve choiced together the most enjoyable, scenic and diverse route.

Depart York Auction site at 06:30, enjoy 3 feed stops on the way along with the awesome Velo29 support. If you don’t make it we are here to scoop you up and ferry you back home.

A 161 specific medal will be awarded to all the finishers back at the HQ, IF you beat the 20:00 cuto off time!
