The Way of the Roses is, in our opinion the most beautiful and challenging of all of the Coast to coast rides. It runs from Morecambe to Bridlington - a total of 270km and 2,500m of climbing.
This highly popular journey passes through the historic cities of York and Lancaster, and lesser known gems such as Settle and Pateley Bridge. We'll have the Yorkshire dales to tackle on day 1, and the route takes in some of the roads used in the 2019 World Championships.
Starting off in sunny Morecambe, we head East towards Lancaster before getting out into the glorious rolling Lancashire countryside. Pen y Ghent is in constant view to the North as we find ourselves crossing into the Yorkshire dales, courtesy of a 20% climb out of the market town of Settle.
This section is the toughest of the whole ride with another climb up to Greenhow hill and one or two other 16 - 18% climbs thrown in for good measure. The scenery will more than make up for the leg busting climbs as Yorskshire shows off it's best vistas and some of the UK's finest scenery!
Small mercies follow as we descend out of the dales into
the gorgeous Yorkshire countryside before riding along traffic free cycle paths into the bustling Medieval city of York.
We'll soon find ourselves back in rural surroundings as we head towards Pocklington,with just one more gentle climb to get us onto the top of the East Yorkshire Wolds before 40 glorious descending miles all the way to the East coast of England and the Quintessentially British seaside town of Bridlington!
