    We’ve made some small alterations to this route since last year – most notably at the very far end of the course around Danby, also meaning that the Danby feeding station is in a new location for 2018. Feeding stations are at the A170 crossing (approx 32 km / 20 miles), Low Mill (approx 44km / 28 miles), Danby (new location, at approx 64km / 40 miles) and with the main food stop at Marton (at 93 km / 58 miles).

 

  • York Rally Grande Classic Dunnie 140k:
    Alternative route avoiding Rosedale Chimney Bank
    Total ascent: 1656 m.
    Actual distance 140 km (87 miles)

    This option diverts for a section of the return leg to avoid the ridiculously steep Rosedale Chimney Bank – for some riders, doing it once may be more than enough! Please note that the route of the diversion has been changed for the 2018 Sportive:

    The 100k route diverges from the longer rides just after the Low Mill feeding station, re-joining before the main food stop at Marton.
