Route Map - Colomba Cardio Classic

Two classic rides that cover much of the TDF2014 route are organised by Colomba Cycle Company, Richmond.

1) Colomba Cardio Classic - usually takes place in March

Covering a total distance of 66 miles with approx 3,500ft of climbing, this classic race takes place in March and starts from the market town of Richmond. The ride HQ is at Richmond Cricket Club on Hurgill Road and the route meanders up through beautiful Swaledale before taking on the challenging climb of the Buttertubs Pass.  From here the race descends into Wensleydale following the quieter roads through the quaint villages of Askrigg, Carperby, Redmire and Wensley.  From Wensley, the ride climbs Gale Bank into Coverdale and follows the undulating roads to Middleham before returning to Richmond.

2) Colomba Chemo Classic - usually takes place in November

Usually run in the late Autumn, this charity ride travels 63 miles through the stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Dales.

Starting from Richmond, this challenging course initially follows the Swaledale road before crossing into Wensleydale and passing through the Dales towns of Leyburn and Middleham. From Middleham the road climbs steadily through Coverdale before descending the fearsome Park Rash into the village of Kettlewell in Wharfedale.  

Heading up Wharfedale, the ride now passes through Buckden and Cray onto the climb at Kidstones. This is rewarded with a long descent into Bishopdale before turning off to Thoralby.  The route re-enters Wensleydale at Aysgarth where you will see the splendid falls as you cross the river Ure before reaching Carperby and Redmire.

From here the road heads over the Grinton Moor towards the village of Grinton in Swaledale before heading back towards Richmond.
