Day 3 is where it gets personal. The official Way of the Roses tracks from Morecambe to Bridlington. I wanted to ride to Scarborough not Brid so this is all my own work. Undulating, rolling, call it what you will the routes over the Wolds are certainly lumpy. With 2 days riding in the legs this is going to be a challenge in itself but what’s the point of it being easy?
Key points on the route planning were avoiding the busy A roads and being sensible on the hills. The A64 may be more direct but it’s a very busy, fast road that would be no fun to ride. I’ve also avoided the climbs out of Langtoft and Foxholes – the car doesn’t like them and I don’t think the legs would either.
At least the profile shows its a downhill to the finish at the Spa!!
