After storming into the World Tour this year, Ineos Grenadiers rider Tom Pidcock is returning to his Yorkshire home and training ground to host an epic new 2021 Yorkshire Gran Fondo.

With a choice of three epic routes, riders will take in the same Yorkshire roads that made Tom the bike rider he is today and test their fitness on Tom's favourite Yorkshire climbs.

The three carefully curated parcours offer a warm up along Tom's favourite ride down the stunning Wharfedale Valley before heading to the hills. The 180km route takes in the notorious Yorkshire climbs of Kidstones and Fleet Moss (from the steep side) before tackling up the lesser known hidden climb of Halton Gill en route to Malham Cove.   

The 110km route enjoys a great warm-up along the Wharfedale Valley before heading up the short but challenging climb of Halton Gill. At the top you're rewarded with epic Yorkshire views surrounding the beautiful Malham Cove before the flat and fast ride back. 

By popular demand we've included a 50km route featuring a flat warm-up along quiet country lanes through the Wharfedale Valley, followed by two testing climbs over Skyreholme and Burnsall Fell before the fast run-in to the finish line.
