The White Rose Classic cycle event is non-competitive, i.e. not a race! If you ride recklessly or endanger others, whether on the road, at Feed Stations, timing points, or anywhere else while an Event Participant, you will be asked to drop out of the event.
Each year we make a significant donation to a local charity from the proceeds of the Event. Since 2018, the Event has donated over £5000 to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance as our designated charity. Please ride safely so they can have the day off!
– You must have a hard-shell helmet conforming to CE standard EN1078 to be allowed to start.
– We do not allow Tri-bars in the Event. They are a potential danger to other riders in the event of an accident. If you show up with them, you will be asked to remove them before starting.
– We recommend that you carry a printed form of identification with your with name, address, and emergency contact details in the event of an accident.
– There will be Ride Marshals at the start/finish, at the timing points and feed stations, and at a select few locations along the road. They are there for everyone’s safety. Please follow their directions. If they want you to slow down or stop, it is for a good reason!
