Join us on this 100 mile road adventure around the Humber Estuary, crossing the majestic Humber Bridge, and visiting some very remote parts of this expansive landscape, not often cycled.
Pace and Terrain
Mostly on road, but with about 5km of good quality gravel track. Quite flat - but with 100m climbs up onto the Wolds both sides of the river! The event pace and route is designed for road bikes rather than hybrids and is aimed at those who are reasonably bike fit, however it's ideal if you want to try for your first century on the bike - even if your maximum so far is say 60 miles!
You do need reasonable personal fitness for this event, however the day is intended to be an outing rather than an endurance test. We will stop for slower riders to catch up whilst going faster in between stops to allow them to develop their technique and fitness. Broadly, anyone who has recently cycled over 50 miles without too much difficulty will be able to complete this ride.
Think this ride might be too much for you? Contact the leader, or why not try one of our leisure cycling or trail riding events first?
