This is one of the flattest 200 mile courses in the country. SportiveUK went out of their way to find a route where competitors would be able to focus on speed and benchmark their summer training. There are a number of "speed bumps", but with only 3400ft of elevation over the whole 200 miles, there is nothing they would consider a Yorkshire hill. This is an incredibly popular event and due to the lack of elevation gain, and tickets do go very fast.
The course will set out at 6:30am through the fast and flat roads of York, allowing riders to get a solid warm up as they build up the speed and the miles. Riders will then cross the Trent at Keadby, and head north to the Humber Bridge before winding along the foothills of Lincolnshire Wolds, under the shadow of the hills but never venturing into them. After crossing back over the Trent, riders will be on the home straight to hit that huge 200 mile milestone.
Celebrate at the finish with your fellow riders, and refuel with burgers, chips, and ice cold beer.
