Vale Velo

06/04/2019 - York - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

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 off 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, 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.

The Vale Velo Sportive is ideal for those wanting to get some training in and, considering the distances, isn't too harsh on the legs. That said, there are a few nice and challenging climbs along the Epic route, so don't partake thinking it will be a ride in the park. It's not. It's a ride through the stunning North Yorkshire countryside.
