If you haven’t heard already, the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge is getting ever closer as we prepare for the fun-filled weekend touring some of Yorkshire’s greatest market towns and exploring the Wolds’ gorgeous rolling landscapes. 
After 72 miles in the saddle on day one, Hutton Cranswick Sports & Recreation Centre, the location of our halfway camp, is a welcome sight indeed. 
But as well as a chance to rest weary legs and soothe a sore posterior, it’s also a real social highlight of the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge. There’s plenty of time to eat, drink and relax at this halfway stopover; an opportunity to chat over the day’s riding with fellow participants. 
There can’t be a better way of seeing some of the best sights the Yorkshire Wolds have to offer. The Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge is an opportunity to tour the market towns and beautiful rolling countryside of parts of East and North Yorkshire; a chance to pause and soak up the views with friends. 
This two-day ride is no walk in the park but you can tackle it how you like, whether that’s competing with friendly rivals, trying to beat your best time or taking it steady as you take in the sights. In this week’s blog, we’re looking at some of the wonderful points of interest you’ll pass on this 144-mile journey. 
A tour of one of the best kept secrets in Yorkshire 
The Yorkshire Wolds may not have the national profile of their nearby cousins the Yorkshire Dales and the Yorkshire Moors but there’s so much to see in this quiet corner of the God’s own country.  
From the spectacular precipice of Bempton cliffs to the gently rolling hills to the beautiful, historic market towns and quaint villages, the Wolds is a varied landscape of unexpected contrasts. And the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge is without doubt the best way to enjoy, soak up and take in all that the area has to offer. 
The route begins at Norton College, near Malton, and follows a circular route developed by the charity Sustrans in 2011, taking in elements of National Cycle Routes 1, 66, 164, 166 and 167. It’s a well-signed ride on quiet country lanes, covering approximately 72 miles on each of its two days, Saturday and Sunday, 2 and 3 July 2022. But as much as it’s a fun ride with great camaraderie, it’s also a personal challenge, with some steep climbs and a total elevation gain of 2,160 metres over 144 miles.
