Queen Ethelburga’s: Queen Ethelburga’s,, York, United Kingdom
You can experience some of the best cycling terrain in England on this bike ride raising funds for vital medical research to help sick and disabled babies and children.
The challenging 100-mile, Champion route will take in the sites of Nidderdale, as you follow in the tyre tracks of the great and the good, on roads used in the Tour de Yorkshire, over the rolling Yorkshire countryside through Summer Bridge and Pateley Bridge before the main climb of the day.
Tapping Hill often referred to as Lofthouse, which featured in both the Tour de Yorkshire 2016 and the UCI Road World Champs 2019, is a 2.1km climb with an average gradient of 9.9% - we assure you the views at the top are worth it. Once the climb is complete you can enjoy some of the flattest lanes Yorkshire has to offer through quiet villages and lanes because, after that climb, you'll need it!
To commemorate the Queen's Anniversary celebrations taking place over the weekend, as well as marking Action Medical Research's 70th birthday, our Classic, 70-mile route is a nod to these great milestones!
Finally, for something a little less intense, the Cool route, at 41-miles, offers up a relatively flat alternative to the others, and take riders past Fountains Abbey and through Ripon.
As ever with an Action RIDE Series charity sportive, you can expect a great day in the saddle with first-class support from the charity who get cyclists!
