Fat Lad at The Back Sportive.
May 8, 2016 @ 7:15 am - 5:00 pm£30
Setting off from the beautiful Spa Town of Ilkley, the Yorkshire routes have been planned by Fat Lad in Charge Richard Bye, who grew up in Ilkley and has been cycling the surrounding roads for the past 20 years, so you’re in for something exceptional.
The routes have been chosen for their breathtaking views, historic locations, superbly enjoyable cycling and varying levels of challenge. As you’ve probably heard, you can’t cycle far around these parts without some climbing, however our emphasis is on enjoying the ride so these routes avoid some of the worst lung stinging climbs available and offer really interesting, varied, challenging and well balanced rides, that you only get with local knowledge.
Our objective is to ensure that you have an ace day out, meet some of the awesome lads and lasses in the FLAB community and leave wanting more. Not more to eat however – our lunch stops are legendary!
There are 3 options to choose from, so there is definitely one for you. The three rides overlap and include sections and drink stops which are shared so you have every chance of meeting up with riders who are on the other 2 routes and if you think you have bitten off more than you can chew, there are several opportunities to follow a shorter route home.
