This new Long route is bang in the middle of our vert per mile spectrum. Less than 2,000m over 170km with the biggest effort coming in the middle of the ride in the form of The Buttertubs from Hawes. This is the way the 2014 TDF tackled the climb, it’s the steeper approach but the descent is unreal! Worth the effort.

The other big lump is the lesser known Robin Cross Hill, another steep ascent followed by a glorious long and fast descent. In fact it’s pretty much down hill for the final 60km all the way to the HQ in Thirsk where your Erdinger alkoholfrei, hot BBQ sausage and a great medal await!
