You might think that ‘ay up’ is nothing more than an affectionate greeting in this part of the world, but the phrase also hints at what you’ll be doing in the Ay Up sportive — you’ll head up, then up, then up once more, on a series of testing hill climbs along the route.
Heading out from Thirsk Racecourse, you’ll be able to designate the first few miles to settling into the ride and warming up for the lung-busting climb challenges that are yet to come. In this early, sedate part of the course you’ll be given the opportunity to appreciate the surrounding scenery, before heading up the first climb, which will in turn give you excellent views of the Thirsk area. Indeed, gorgeous scenery is part and parcel of this ride… but so too is pain!
