A unique cycling sportive initiated by the managers of one of Yorkshire’s most successful racing teams this season, and hosted by the Wold Top Brewery, has been launched.
Organised by Richard Baldwin and David Hought from Wold Top Actif Road Racing Team, the first Sundown 60 sportive will take place at Wold Top Brewery on Sunday 28 August 28.
This sportive challenges convention as, instead of an early morning start, riders will depart at 2.30pm.
The challenging route will take riders on a spectacular 60 mile route into the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds and Ryedale.
Mr Hought said the idea behind the sportive was to create an unusual and unique event for cyclists in Yorkshire.
He said: “Due to the later departure time, we expect to arrive back at Wold Top Brewery, hopefully on a beautiful day, with the sun setting over the Yorkshire Wolds, hence the name. It’s all about getting people out into the countryside onto routes they don’t know.”
Some of the Wold Top Actif team will also be acting as marshals on the day.
En-route technical support will be available from Vive le Velo and Hull street food business KerbEdge will provide refreshments en route and catering at the end of the ride.
Entries are open to cyclists aged 18 and over and entry costs £35.
