The Maserati Tour de Yorkshire Ride offers a unique mix of Tour de France delivery combined with Yorkshire hospitality and beauty resulting in a sportive dream day. This is your chance to ride many of the same roads as the pros before they do, including the pro finish line, complete with support from the waiting crowds.
Please note, the exact distance for the 100km is 101km and routes may be subject to change. Any rider taking part in the Long Route will be required to maintain an average speed of 15kph. This ride takes in 1,947m of climbing and requires riders to have a very good level of fitness to maintain the necessary average speed.
"Rightly holds its place towards the top end of the 'must-ride' category of UK sportives" - Cyclist Magazine
"I had just tackled 100km (62 miles) of Yorkshire’s finest roads, totting up 6,500 feet of elevation in the process, and I was a broken man. But for the 30 seconds of that final straight, the whistles, shouts and whoops as deafening as they were uplifting, I felt as light and spritely as I had five hours earlier.” - Telegraph
The project sees old and unwanted bikes that would have otherwise been thrown in the tip or left to gather dust in garages donated, repaired and then loaned out to children and families free of charge. It’s a simple concept, but one that could potentially change a child’s life forever. It is our mission to make Yorkshire the first place where nobody, because of their circumstances, is deprived of a bike.
If you have old bikes that you no longer use, please think about donating them at one of Yorkshire’s 51 donation stations. To date the project has provided more than 31,000 opportunities for young people to ride a bike. To learn more about the project please visit www.bikelibraries.co.uk
