This new Cyclothing Long route is one of the most delightful and not too challenging ways to strike off 100 miles!

Riders who’ve enjoyed our Selby 3 Swans event will realte to this route as we explore some similar (but not the same) parts of the World.

At 911m of vert over the 100 miles it really isn’t too hilly, some lumps but we’ve done our best to be kind!

We deaprt Pontefract RUFC in an anti-clockwise direction and immediatley take to the delightful little roads which the entire ride enjoys.

3 feeds along the way, we use the great location of The Old Girls School, Sherburn in Elmet for Feed 2 & 3 with Lawson Hut in Badsworth serving as the Breakfast stop.

The Cyclothon Long is a great way to get in 100 wonderful not too hilly miles in a part of the World which many will be surprised at just how lovely it is!

Oh yes……and raise some funds for this great charity!
