Way of the Roses 29th 30th 31st May


Saturday evening at Morecambe Bay Hotel.
Then to Pateley Bridge = 62 miles.  Harefield Hall booked with their bunkhouse accomodation for Sunday night.
Pateley Bridge to York = 47 miles
York to Bridlington = 61 miles
170 miles in total.

Detailed distances here: “The route is best done from West to East (Morecambe to Bridlington) for the greater chance of having the wind at your back. This way you’ll be tackling the steeper climbs, but enjoying longer down hills. The steepest and longest climbs lie between Settle and Brimham Rocks and the hill out of Settle presents the greatest challenge.
Unfortunately, going down Greenhow Hill has caught a few cyclists out and NYCC and Sustrans have produced a leaflet to let you know what lies in store. Have a look at this video too – please don’t underestimate this demanding hill and remember that descending in the wet can impair your braking.”
