The Wiggle Vale Velo, now in its second year, is an early-season sportive designed to get you back into your best form and ready for the rest of the riding calendar. 

The course allows you to chip away at the miles while tackling occasionally testing terrain. With almost 4,000ft of climbing over the Epic route, this is a quick and speedy course, presenting to you some of the best views the Vale of York and the Yorkshire Wolds have to offer, while also providing an early-year wake-up call for the legs.

Starting from the York Auction Centre, the course heads straight out onto the roads of the stunning North Yorkshire district, while also threading through the quaint and typically pretty villages of the area. First, the route bears east, taking you past the historic battleground of Stamford Bridge, before heading up to Low Callis Wold. 

At this point, riders of the Short course split and head north to re-join the course at Leavening, while Epic and Standard riders continue east to pass through North Dalton, soon to take their own path north. 

Once again, the course splits shortly after and just before Sledmere House, sending Standard riders west as Epic riders continue to ride east even further, to the farthest point on the course in Rudston. Here, we start to head for home, and as the finish closes in, two final climbs lay in wait before the long, gradual descent back to York.

Back at ride HQ you will receive a warm welcome along with a finisher's medal and t-shirt.
