White Horse Sportive – Yorkshire Cycling

The White Horse is a fine way to end your Sportive Season.

With three distance options, there is something to suit all abilities. From the 26mile short route with one “challenge” climb, the Medium route with some major hills and the long route which tackles both Carlton and White Horse Bank. The routes are all really well designed and though the distances are not overly long there are no sections which are just there to get from A to B. Every mile is on beautiful North Yorkshire country roads with great views, breathtaking views and hardly a car in sight.

As well as the climbs we enjoy some fast and challenging descents and some great sections which are our personnel favourites but hardly known by local riders. The medium and long enjoy a brilliant 15mile section from the White Horse to Osmotherley, roads you won’t know well but will do soon!

Everyone arrives back at the HQ with a real buzz, as we twist through the empty lanes with only cyclists in sight we’ll be lost in what a wonderful route the White Horse is and how enjoyable riding these roads in a Velo29 Event really can be.

Selby Three Swans Sportive – Yorkshire Cycling

Selby 3 Swans, another amazing new event in the Velo29 Calendar!

This Sportive was established originally by Selby Cycling Club, a victim of its own success and a credit to the great job done by the club it rapidly outgrew the capacity of a Club setup so was passed to Yorkshire Cancer Research. Hit by the pandemic, the charity is no longer able to run the event so Velo29 have stepped in to retain what is an important event for Yorkshire Cancer Research and to give you all yet another awesome day out on the bike!

20% of your entry fee (excluding booking fee) will go to Yorkshire Cancer Research, 5% will go to Selby Cycling Club. You are of course welcome to fundraise and donate further to the charity if you wish, we’d love to hear your stories on that.

As always, 3 great routes, feed stops on all of them, brilliant Velo29 signage, our great ride support and of course the friendliest atmosphere you’re likely to encounter!

Tour of the Pennines Sportive – Yorkshire Cycling

The Tour of The Pennines, an amazing mix of challenging climbs, amazing descents and stunning scenery in an area which will be new to many of our customers.

An event with over 1,500 riders in the past! The HQ at Barnard Castle is great to access from the East and West, just off the A66. We ride North with the first climb after only 10km known locally as Billy Lane.

It’s lumpy all the way to the first Stanhope Stop after 37km where we’ll enjoy all the really great feed stop treats you expect from Velo29. Here the Medium route (no short option) heads back South with the delightful climb of Unthank Bank (official 100 Climbs number 155), you’ll understand its name on the day! The wonderful thing is that once we crest the 395m summit we descend then immediately we tackle Bollihope Climb, all the way from 300m to 500m in 1 mile!

HQ St Peter’s Square
SK1 1DL

The event that is rapidly becoming a ‘must-do’ early-season sportive. Not many sportives can boast a true town centre start but we have secured the lovely St Peters Square in Stockport to begin this new event. With views and scenery to rival most sportives in the UK Manchester Sheffield Manchester (MSM) – The Stockport Sportive is an absolute belter. Of course, there are climbs and MSM does not disappoint, in fact, the long is one of our toughest rides! Each route has its fair share of elevation gain with the medium and long routes tackling the iconic ‘Snake Pass’.

Each route will have our award-winning food at the feed stations with the long route having a feed at Hillsborough, home of Sheffield Wednesday FC.

If you are ready to take the challenge then don’t delay to enter Edition 2 of Manchester Sheffield Manchester – The Stockport Sportive.
