This cycling route has been designed to give you some quality kilometres but over gentle terrain considering yesterday’s heroics in the Yorkshire Dales!

Scarborough
 

For those looking for a rest then today is the perfect chance to recuperate before tomorrow´s attack on the Elite Women Road Race course. Our hotel accompanies a golf course so perhaps some might like to even play a round!

There is no UCI Worlds racing today as the transition from time trial to road race action takes effect. The cycling route on offer takes advantage of the UCI pause to ride east to the Yorkshire coastline. Scarborough is one of North Yorkshire’s favourite coastal towns and its rugged rocky headland and medieval castle are real highlights. The ride will finish with lunch on Scarborough’s award winning sandy North Bay – how does fish and chips sound everyone?

Norwood Edge (1km, ave. 8%, max. 10%)
Lofthouse (3km, ave. 9%, max. 17%)

As the peloton rolls-on our ride heads back to Harrogate through the national park.
