RIDE Vyking

Gilling Castle, Yorkshire, United Kingdom
19 Sep, 2021 - 19 Sep, 2021

About this event

Offering up our toughest sportive yet, RIDE Vyking takes in some of the most feared climbs in England. Alongside brutal ascents, including Boltby Bank, the dreaded Rosedale Chimney will call on you to channel your inner Viking, and summon up the power of Odin before attacking this top ten climb. With an average gradient of 13% and a maximum of 33%, it is the joint steepest paved road in England. This universally feared, chain-snapping, vicious double hairpin stretch may only by 0.8 miles, but the only ones amused by its one-three gradient will be the grazing sheep you'll be dodging!
