Five sportives to ride in Yorkshire this summer

With one month until the Tour de France, want to see what all the fuss is about? Here are five events to put in your calendar

Wiggle Yorkshire Tour
Saturday September 27

The late-season Wiggle Yorkshire Tour, part of the huge portfolio of sportives run by UK Cycling Events, offers riders a final chance to see what Yorkshire has to offer before the sun finally sets on the summer of 2014.

Starting from Thirsk Racecourse, the sportive links sections of the  Grand Départ with quiet roads, with three route options available: 37 miles, 79 miles and 101 miles.

With roads like this, it’s little wonder the Tour de France chose to come to Yorkshire (Pic: Welcome to Yorkshire)

“For those intending on challenging themselves to the Epic route [101 miles], this is not for the faint hearted, the moor is tough but the views should more than make up for sore legs,” promise the event organisers.

Entry fee: £20 (37 miles), £30 (79 miles, 101 miles)
Route: 37 miles, 79 miles, 101 miles
