Long Route only: mile 52, kilometre 84
We are hosted at the renowned Wensleydale Creamery, which is on the route as you come into Hawes. (If you have ridden the White Rose Classic in the past, note the route change in Gayle that leads directly to the Creamery.) Please be aware that the Creamery is very popular. Give way to cars and pedestrians in the area.
– This feed station promises a taste of something different – a sample of Wensleydale Cheeses. It may not be traditional cycling nutrition, but it is something substantial to sustain you for the long ride ahead.
– This is a timing station as well. Be sure to dib your wristband if you want complete times.
– Toilets are in the main building next to the feed station. You can go around to the side entrance on the right.
After leaving Hawes, the next big challenge is the Coal Road climb, quickly followed by the Deepdale climb. The next feed station is in Settle at mile 89/kilometre 143.
