DATE: Saturday 11th May 2019

LOCATION: Ilkley Rugby Club, Ilkley, LS29 0AA

ROUTES:  25miles/50miles/75miles and 100miles

DESCRIPTION: Back for the 4th year and now considered one of the MUST DO events of the Sportive calendar, The Up North Sportive just got bigger and fatter with the addition of the EPIC 100 miler.

Join us for what promises to be the friendliest and most inclusive bike ride of 2019, meet the awesome FLAB community and ride in the stunning North Yorkshire countryside for what promises to be one of the most enjoyable and friendly days riding you'll find. 

Planned by the original Fat Lad Richard, who's been cycling these roads for the past 20 years, the routes have been chosen for their breathtaking views, historic locations, superbly enjoyable cycling and varying levels of challenge.

There are hills without doubt, but our emphasis is on enjoying the ride so we avoid some of the worst lung stingers and offer interesting, varied, challenging and well balanced rides, that you only get with local knowledge. With 4 options to choose from, there's definitely one for you. 

If you're worried about riding alone, why not join one of our Ride Ambassadors and cycle in a group, getting tips and encouragement all the way around. 

Make a weekend of it and join us at Ilkley Rugby Club for a post Sportive evening of beer, banter and maybe some boogy with music. Evening tickets £3.
