This month sees the return of the well thought of cycle, the West Riding Classic. This is a 33, 60 or 75 mile sportive which is held in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. It’s not competitive which means that anyone of any ability can enter and not be put off if you do not feel you can undertake all 75 miles. The fifth West Riding Classic commences during the same weekend as the Tour de Yorkshire arrives in Settle so be inspired to be riding through Yorkshire which the professionals and biggest names in the cycling profession.
Spring Cycle Special
To enter the West Riding Classic it will cost you £26 and this also includes unlimited tea and coffee before during and after the sportive not only for the person taking part but for their support team, too. There is also free nourishment which include homemade soups and parkin. This is an essential especially if you are undertaking the maximum cycle as the route has an exhausting 2200 metre vertical ascent for you to tackle. You will therefore be grateful for some much needed refreshment when you succeeded in reaching the top.
