This year’s challenge will involve two days of breathtakingly scenic cycling through the beautiful Lancashire countryside and Yorkshire Dales, before culminating in a much-deserved celebratory dinner for participants on the final night.
Riders will begin their adventure in the stunning seaside town of Morecambe, setting off along the River Lune on a 77-mile journey to Harrogate. The route will pass through the rolling Lancashire hills, past the bustling Yorkshire market town of Settle before ascending further east along the lush green fields of the Dales, with a well-earned overnight stop in picturesque Harrogate.
Day two will reward participants with flatter plains, with the 95-mile-long leg taking in the sights of the historic walled city of York, before meandering through farms and towns along the Yorkshire hills, towards the final finish in the quaint seaside town of Bridlington – ahead of that evening’s celebratory dinner and overnight stay.
Both team and individual entries are encouraged.
Places are strictly limited, so don’t delay in grabbing your spot on this unforgettable challenge using the registration link below!
