Yorkshire cycling isn’t just about the Tour – it has everything any self-respecting cyclist wants to lay their tyres on. To this end, Cadence presents the first of our Monument series, designed to bring riders a flavour of the Spring classics on the roads of Yorkshire.

2018’s Monuments ride provides a heady 100km blend of Rondesque cobbled climbs, sharp punchy ascents evocative of Liege-Bastogne-Liege and sections of pave to summon the spirit of Paris-Roubaix.

This is a route for experienced riders whose heart embraces the romantic history of the sport, and is perfect for people training for a Monuments sportive or simply as an event to train for in its own right.
