A new mass-participation ride has been created by British Cycling and will take place two days before the start of the Tour of Britain. Called the Yorkshire Tour Ride, it's a three-route ride with the longest ride being 87 miles over Holme Moss and the Snake Pass.

The three rides will feature transponder timing, mechanical and nutritional back-up, and full signposting.

The Yorkshire Tour Ride takes place on Bank Holiday Sunday 28th August and includes the 87-mile Holme Moss Humdinger, the 50-mile Snake Pass Pedal, and the 18.5-mile Le Bradfield Bicyclette.

British Cycling’s Manchestour, which was run along similar lines last year, attracted 500+ entries.
