THE CLASSIC (100 km / 62 miles)

Our Classic route is a real tour de force of the highest sections of the Wolds, offering a stern physical challenge to cyclists of most abilities as well as breathtaking scenery from the rolling peaks.

After the modest hills around the Great Wolds Valley, the route past Sledmere sees both climbs and descents increase in severity and your bike handling will be tested at various points. The rewards though for these endeavours are substantial with most of this route along largely traffic free single lane roads which wind along deep dales giving a sense of freedom and joy.

The sections into Thixendale and out of Millington are to be particularly savoured. After Huggate you will be grateful for the long descent back into Driffield and a well earned rest.
