Enthusiastic cyclists will be venturing back out into the Wolds thanks to the work of organisers and sponsors, including Wold Top Brewery, who have come together to host the Wolds 123 sportive for the sixth year running.
Riders on the Wolds 123 will have the chance to take in the best of the Wolds when the non-timed 123km event returns to the KP Club in Pocklington on Sunday, July 7th.
Participants will have the option to cycle the entire distance of the main route or can shorten it by missing either a 25km loop or a 13 km loop along the way. The route takes in a number of climbs and the total elevation is 1,475 metres.
Kate Balchin, Export and Accounts Manager at Wold Newton based Wold Top Brewery, will be supporting the Wolds 123 again.
“As in previous years, some of the Wold Top team will be amongst the 100 participants. It’s a great and incredibly scenic route, but not without its challenges, so the pint at the finish tends to be well deserved and much appreciated.”
The organisers, David Hought and Richard Baldwin, who manage the Wold Top The Edge Racing Team, have designed the route to pass some iconic points in interest in the local area.
David said they were inspired by The KP Club in Pocklington, where the route begins, as a venue and for its scenic location. It has been the starting point for the sportive since the first event in 2014.
Registration takes place between 8am and 9am at the KP Club, where the ride will commence at 9.30am. Riders will be staggered to set off in small groups.
Entries are now open online at a cost of £35 and all riders under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult during the event.
