Make your way up to Harrogate, settle in to your 4* hotel and come and meet us across the road at the Cold Bath Clubhouse. Enjoy a cup of tea or a beer in the clubhouse or if you arrive in time for a ride today, there is an optional easy spin which will include some key sections of the 2019 World Road Race Championships Harrogate Circuit.
Today is a day to experience the best of Harrogate and its climbing by tackling large sections of the 2019 UCI World Championships route. You will ride out into Wharfedale and take on the legendary Buttertubs pass. It’s said that farmers would lower their butter into the limestone rocks when they were resting, hence the name of this classic Yorkshire climb. You will ride over Grinton Moor before heading south to Bolton Abbey, the ruins of a 12th century monastery. You will then head into Harrogate or for some extra mileage, ride into Ilkley before riding back to Harrogate.
Today is a day to get climbing as we head out into the Yorkshire Dales. The sheer amount of rolling terrain and climbs here mean we will extend this route for anybody who wants to grab some more mileage. You will ride out from the clubhouse, and wind your way up to Pateley Moor. We will stop for some coffee and cake stop in the famous Yorkshire village of Pateley Bridge before tackling the famous climbs of Two Stoops or Greenhow Hill.
If you would like to add any more days and group riding on to this trip, just let us know and we can make it bespoke for you.
Arguably the spiritual home of UK cycling, Yorkshire has some of the best riding in the country. From stunning vistas across the Yorkshire Dales to roads well trodden by the Tour de Yorkshire, this is UK riding at its most enchanting.
