Cycling Weekly Ripon Revolution Sportive

24/06/2017 - Ripon - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

Yorkshire, for all of its natural beauty, is best explored by bicycle. A Tour de France Grand Depart and subsequently founded Tour de Yorkshire pay dividends to that sentiment, proving that the rustic landscape is a perfect test for road cycling with its challenging climbs, equally rewarding descents and magnificent scenery.

The Cycling Weekly Ripon Revolution will send you riding through the famous landscapes Yorkshire has made itself known for as you'll set off from Ripon and see for yourself how the great hills and pastoral roads make for a great cycle route mix.

The first few miles start on an increasing hill incline, as we'll give you chance to warm up your legs before taking on the highest peak of the day fairly soon after rolling over the start line. This ascent is part of a four-strong line-up of climbs that follow one another, passing Masham then the Leighton Reservoir, eventually reaching High Ash Moor at the top to take in the breath taking views across the surrounding area.

You'll be able to rack up some speed on the descent down to Lofthouse, which starts off steep and levels out, following the River Nidd to pass the naturally attractive Gouthwaite Reservoir - before the next big uphill test, taking on the challenging climb of Greenhow Hill, just after passing through Pateley.

Once more, your efforts will be rewarded with a long and sprawling descent, offering some recovery time before it's time to tackle the last two major climbs of the day, going over Round Hill and Brimham Rocks.

The hard work done, the remainder of the miles left until you reach ride HQ mostly lean downhill, so there's no reason not to empty the tank on your final push to earn a well-deserved finisher's medal.
