Sportive riders can follow in the pedal strokes of the world’s best cyclists and soak up the atmosphere left by the Tour de France on the two-day NSPCC Tour of Yorkshire.
The event, the second of the NSPCC Tour of England series, takes place on Saturday July 19 and Sunday July 20 and offers amateurs the professional experience with fully-supported riding.
Domestiques, lead cars, soigneurs, mechanics and motorcycle outriders are all part of the package, with routes taking in the challenging, but spectacular, white rose countryside.
The Yorkshire Wolds, North Yorkshire Moors, timed climbs of Boltby Bank and Hanging Grimston and the option to race on York’s new circuit are also included in the 180-mile event.
Organised by cycling events company Ride2Raise, a comprehensive pre-event programme of training rides and coaching sessions for all abilities are also on offer, alongside a free tour jersey and energy bars and gels.
Ride2Raise’s Richard King said: “This is a premium event with a completely unique format within the UK sportive scene – and customisable entry means riders can choose whether they race or ride, and whether they self-fund or fundraise.
“However they do it, this is a tough, iconic ride requiring grit, determination and training in a region that will be full of cycling euphoria following the greatest bike race on earth. If participants are up for the challenge, we’ll give them the ultimate pro-rider experience.”
Riders who commit to raising £300 for the NSPCC will pay a registration fee of just £49 and will be guaranteed a free place at the Yellow Jersey Dinner with presentations and special guest speakers.
Alternatively, riders can register without a minimum sponsorship commitment for a fee of £169 per individual – with the Yellow Jersey Dinner costing a further £60.
Registration closes on Friday June 20, for more information click here.
