This all new figure of 8 Medium route is a real peach. Medium routes often get overlooked due to the drama of a tough long however there are some real medium route gems in the series and Ripon Tour is one of them.

At 110km it’s not at all short but the vert is quite relaxed, we’ve done this intentionally to give you a really enjoyable day out. The biggest lumps come half way between Coverham and Wensley where we climb to almost 1,000ft. Don’t worry, it is followed by a glorious descent.

2 well stocked feeds, both at Thornton Watlass. On the way out after 32km it’s a breakfast feed then when we stop there a 2nd time after 70km it’s our well known Full Fat feed, pies, sarnies, brownies and a Yorkshire Brew! From there back to the HQ it’s nearly all downhill, we’ll be waiting on the finish line with your Erdinger alkoholfrei, hot BBQ sausage and a great medal!
