York-Leeds-York Long Profile

York-Leeds-York Long 3d

York – Leeds – York, one of the biggest early season sportives with a slightly amended route incorporating York’s Millennium Bridge.

Depart and pass as close to the historic City of York as you can to avoid any serious traffic.

We cross the River Ouse on the Millennium Bridge as we head onto some stunning little Country roads in the direction of Leeds.

A major headline on this long route is our visit to Harewood house, a real coup for a Sportive. Harewood hosted the Grand Depart of the 2014 Tour de France and is spectacular to cycle through. Here we have been granted permission to host a feed station so you can enjoy a bite to eat and a warm drink in view of the magnificent house.

The real test then begins as you will head to the hills with 2652ft of climbing (and descent) in 25miles as you cycle past the Fewston & Swainsty Reservoirs. At 60.5m (97.3km) you will cycle past the iconic Alsmcliffe Crag before heading back to Harewood House for a second feed stop.

From here the terrain eases as the last 20miles is almost pan flat with another crossing of the River Ouse across the swing bridge at Cawood before heading back toward York.
