Day 2 is a classic sprinter’s stage. After a sharp climb to start the day and a brake wearing descent into Pateley Bridge it’s pretty much pan flat across the Vale of York.
I think the full English breakfast will have to be foregone for the more sensible porridge though. Not sure greasy bacon is the right fuel for the tank!!
This is the day most likely to be treated to the ad-hoc directions treatment. The official Way of the Roses route cuts straight through the centre of York. I’m not sure second guessing the intentions of Saturday afternoon shoppers is wise, so maybe a diversion around the north of city is more prudent.
