Firmly established as one of the 'must-do' events, and a true classic in every sense of the word, the event is taking place on the 7th July 2013.
Offering you a choice of 3 challenging routes; 110 miles, 84 miles and 50 miles, and taking you through the heart of the stunning Yorkshire Dales, it really is a showcase event for the very best the beautiful Yorkshire Dales has to offer.
The event headquarters will be at the fantastic facility at Ilkley Rugby Club again at the edge of Ilkley, providing changing and showering facilities, parking, food and drink.
The White Rose Classic is donating at least 10% of the profits to Sue Ryder . They support people living through the challenges of life-changing illness. .
