Keighley and Richmond RAYNET will be providing radio safety cover for White Rose Classic. White Rose Classic is considered a premier road cycling sportive in the North. Re-established in 2012 by the newly re-formed Ilkley Cycling Club, this sell-out, 1000 rider event aims to provide a challenging day out through some of the most spectacular Yorkshire Dales scenery – taking in some of its classic (read toughest) climbs! With three routes to choose from, the event provides for differing levels of ability and experience. Whether you are a whippet-like club rider looking for a gold standard time, or want a more leisurely, but challenging, day out in the saddle, the White Rose Classic has something for you.
The White Rose Classic is organised and run by volunteers from Ilkley Cycling Club in conjunction with British Cycling. Profit from your entry fee goes towards promoting local grass-roots cycling initiatives, including a very active youth-development programme, as well as encouraging more men and women to ride bikes as per our club motto, From Recreation to Racing.
