About
Yorkshire, for all of its natural beauty, is best explored by bicycle. A Tour de France Grand Depart and a subsequently founded Tour de Yorkshire pay dividends to that sentiment, proving that the rustic landscape is a perfect test for road cycling with its challenging climbs, equally rewarding descents and magnificent scenery.We want to encourage young riders to enjoy the pleasure of cycling. That's why all riders under 16 years old only have to pay a small fee to cover the entry process. All under 16 riders must be accompanied by a paying adult. Valid ID will be requested on the day.The Sigma Sports Ripon Revolution will send you riding through the famous landscapes Yorkshire that were part of this year’s Tour de Yorkshire route. As you set off from Ripon, you’ll see for yourself how the hills and pastoral roads made for a great bike race.The first few miles start on an increasing hill incline, as we’ll give you chance to warm up your legs before taking on the highest peak of the day fairly soon after rolling over the start line. This ascent is part of a four-strong line-up of climbs that follow one another, passing Masham then the Leighton Reservoir, eventually reaching High Ash Moor at the top to take in the breathtaking views across the surrounding area.You’ll be able to rack up some speed on the descent down to Lofthouse, which starts off steep and levels out, following the River Nidd to pass the naturally attractive Gouthwaite Reservoir – before the next big uphill test, taking on the challenging climb of Greenhow Hill, just after passing through Pateley.Once more, your efforts will be rewarded with a long and sprawling descent, offering some recovery time before it’s time to tackle the last two major climbs of the day, going over Round Hill and Brimham Rocks.The hard work done, the remainder of the miles left until you reach ride HQ mostly lean downhill, so there’s no reason not to empty the tank on your final push to earn a well-deserved finisher’s medal.
