A Beginner’s Guide to Sportive Riding

What to Expect in a Velo29 Sportive

No other Sportive organisation knows Yorkshire like Velo29 do! We grew up here and still today spend our time riding, walking and enjoying this stunning part of the World.

We wanted to bring you an awesome new Yorkshire Sportive for 2023. An early season event which took in as much of this brilliant area as possible and Ronde Yorkshire is exactly that!

There are Hills of course! We find the first (Clay Bank) in the opening 10km! The short departs Medium and Long at the top of Clay to enjoy Bilsdale and Newgate Bank before re-joining M&L at the Feed.

Medium and Long twist through some of Yorkshire’s finest roads, Heartbeat Country if you know it? Kildale, Castleton, Danby, Lealholm, Glaisdale, Egton, Rosedale….we’ve picked the best route through. The long route drops into Whitby, it’s worth the extra KM to ride up the Keiber Pass to the Whale Bone, along the cliff top then down to Sandsend. The coastline here is amazing!

The good news is that Medium and Long get to ride up Rosedale Chimney before heading South to Helmsley and then back along the delightful Hawnby to Osmotherley Road. Flat all the way back to HQ for an amazing new medal!

A must do event for 2023!
