Yorkshire Velo Tours

At the heart of Yorkshire Velo Tours is a passion for road cycling in Yorkshire. We have a well qualified, knowledgeable and enthusiastic team to make your cycling experience one to remember. Our cycling tours, rides and routes and group events are designed for riders of all abilities who want to enjoy what Yorkshire has to offer.

Our road cycling tours are for keen road cyclists of all abilities and we offer circular routes staying in different locations each evening as well as tours and day events based in our home town of Ilkley.

The rides are an exclusive individual guided and supported experience similar to a sportive ride in that there is a set route, but are not timed. What you get over and above a typical sportive is a pre-ride bike check, a support vehicle and team mechanic, the benefit of riding in a small group with your own dedicated ride leader and lunch.

Challenge Ride 2: Haworth, Hebden Bridge and Widdop Moor

Your chance to ride the best sections of the 2019 UCI World Championships Mens Elite Road Race ahead of the actual race in September 2019. You will ride out through Wharfedale and take on the big climbs of Kidstones, Buttertubs pass and Grinton Moor. Then experience one of the flatter fast sections heading towards Masham before taking a scenic route back to the start point in Ilkley.

The route misses out some of the urban sections of the actual race route and also the finishing circuit in Harrogate as it is not rideable under usual traffic regulations.

Challenge Ride 4: Kidstones, Buttertubs Pass, Grinton Moor

One Saturday each month from March to September we are hosting a fully supported challenge ride. The routes are incredibly varied with each one having its own very distinct character to show off the wide variety of terrain and scenery in the Yorkshire Dales and the South Pennines.

The rides are an exclusive individual guided and supported experience similar to a sportive ride in that there is a set route, but are not timed. What you get over and above a typical sportive is a pre-ride bike check, a support vehicle and team mechanic, the benefit of riding in a small group with your own dedicated ride leader and a top caf stop. The rides are a great way of exploring new territory in the safe hands of YVT and will be of interest to local riders as well as visitors to the area. We guarantee to give you an epic day out that will stay long in your memory! If you are concerned about running out of energy on the ride, there are up to 4 spaces available in the support vehicle, so you can hop on board if necessary.
