At 52km it’s a cracking ride out ahead of the bigger Sportives starting in March. We’ve made it quite flat, it’s not pan flat but there certainly aren’t any Mountains!

A great feed stop after 32km at Great Smeaton Village Hall, ideally situated just before the split point.

A lovely spacious Village Hall well stocked with all the famous Velo29 feed stop treats with a hot brew too!

From the feed back to HQ there are some really special bits of road, especially where we cross the Tees on a stunning little bridge at Low Dinsdale Manor.

All the fun you’d expect at a Velo29 Sportive, smiles, great feeds, the best signage and all the event support you need!

An awesome medal, chilled can of erdinger alkoholfrei and hot sausage bun await you back in Darlington.
