Otley Sportive

Our original ride is back for its fifth year.  This is the first year we have kept the route the same, but with the feedback from last years event we felt the route is one of the best we have created and want to give it another go.

The 72 mile route takes on 6000ft of climbing, including the infamous Greenhow Hill. Heading out from Otley, to Almscliff Cragg, Beckwithshaw, Ripley, onto Masham, before heading back to Pateley Bridge and then up to Appletreewick, Bolton Bridge and returning to Otley.

Our medium route takes on 3500ft of climbing, heading out on the same route to Ripley, before heading over to Sawley, until getting to Greenhow Village before coming back to Appletreewick, Bolton Bridge and returning to Otley.

Our short route will be extended out to Bolton Abbey and back using the back roads.  This will take in 22 miles and is an excellent starter ride for those just beginning to take up Sportives.
