The White Horse is a fine way to end your Sportive Season. As we twist through the empty lanes with only cyclists in sight well be lost in what a wonderful route the White Horse is and how enjoyable riding these roads in a Velo29 Event really can be.

This route explores the best cycling Yorkshire has to offer including many of the roads used for the 2014 Tour de France Grand Depart linked together via quiet scenic lanes. The route is a real mix of Yorkshire cycling routes, taking in quiet undulating roads to long slogs up to the high, exposed moors that deliver dramatic views across stunning landscapes.
Setting off from Whitby the roads are superb, and as we descend to Sandsend and ride along the sea front, the views are amazing. The most picturesque start to any sportive! But dont relax, well shortly be climbing Lythe bank,with its long drags to the top. From Lythe we disappear into the North Yorkshire Moors and their spell-binding scenery, quiet roads, stunning little villages, tough climbs and exhilarating descents, before returning to Whitby to celebrate our part in the famous Whitby Regatta, now in its 177th year and one of the oldest such events in the World. 32 miles, 58 miles, 79 miles.
