This is a truly beautiful ride with something for everyone including first time sportive riders, intermediate riders and serious athletes.

The West Riding Classic ticket price (£26.00) includes unlimited tea and coffee before, during and after the sportive for all the riders and their support team. A feed station provides free nourishment and refreshment of real homemade soups and parkin – we think it’s the best feed station in the UK – and plenty of challenging climbing. The 75 miles extra-long route has 2200 metres of vertical ascent.
The fifth edition of the West Riding Classic is the same weekend as The Tour de Yorkshire arrives in Settle so riders can enjoy be inspired by the professionals sprint finish on Friday and ride themselves on Saturday.
