This is a 100km Brevet Populaire, an entry level event for riders interested in riding longer distance.
Keep to the Roads is an introduction to the North Yorkshire Moors, there is some strenuous climbing, but also a chance for a refreshing drink at the Lion Inn on Blakey Ridge. Then dropping down to Castleton and over the moors once more to reach the coast for ice-cream at Saltburn.
