ABOUT

Date: Sunday 21st May 2017

Test your mind, challenge your mates and rip off your legs on a sportive in the Yorkshire Dales that will bury you into the darkest depths of bike riding.

Spanning 108 miles and taking in 9427ft of climbing over North Yorkshire’s notorious killer climbs, the Struggle sportive makes a century ride feel like your average Sunday club run.

THE ROUTE

Although there’s some challenging uphill segments, there’s plenty of fun, flat segments too. View the Struggle route and download the GPX file here: STRUGGLE ROUTE
