100 mile battle of the Ride of the Roses

If Martyn's Tour de France challenge whetted your apetite to get into the saddle and take on the hills, you may want to consider our August Ride of the Roses as a closer to home and slightly less taxing option.

This 100 mile bike ride sets off from Lancaster University and follows the varied and breathtaking landscapes of Northern England, including the stunning Trough of Bowland, Gisburn Forest and the rugged unspoilt scenery of the Yorkshire Dales.

The severity of the climbs is not quite up there with the French Alps but, with the majority of the route taking place on rural roads, there are some steep gradients and challenging hills to overcome before reaching the finish line in historic York.
