New for 2023, The City Ride!

Velo29 have added the new City Rides to several our Sportives. These are shorter routes than our standard distances with a view to making these great Sportives more accessible to more people.

A great day out of anyone with a bike. Perhaps a friend who rides in longer distances, a member of the family who you’ve been keen to get involved or someone entirely new to riding with Velo29.

All the fun of the longer routes, we’ve got a Nutrition stop, fuelled by High5, great route signage and support and a finishers medal, post ride BBQ and a great fun, all welcome atmosphere throughout!

A great day out, a load of fun and all in support of the POWH!

At present we’ve got City rides in York – Leeds – York and The Prince of Wales Hospice Cyclothon but more coming soon!
