Velo29-Altura White Horse Sportive

26/09/2015 - Nunthorpe / North Yorkshire Moors - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

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

For 2015 we've changed the Medium Route, it's now shorter at 60 miles and avoids the long and not enjoyable "Grave Yard" drag from Helmesley to Sutton Bank. We believe this will make the 3 routes more logically distanced opening up the Medium ride to more riders.

With three distance options there is something to suit all abilities. From the 26 mile short route with one "challenge" climb, the Medium route with some major KOM's 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, breath taking 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 favorites but hardly known by local riders. The medium and long enjoy a brilliant 15 mile 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.
