The Rapha Women’s 100 ride, supported by Wheelbase, will cover 100 kilometres over mixed terrain starting at Wheelbase Yorkshire in the popular Victorian spa town of Ilkley in and traversing north-west across the country on a mix of quiet tarmac lanes and some of the best gravel tracks in the UK before arriving in the scenic village of Staveley in the Lake District, home of our flagship Wheelbase Store.

This friendly group ride will be hosted by qualified female cycle guides for the duration of the ride and we will include mini-bus travel and bike transport from Wheelbase in Staveley to the starting point in Ilkley. Once the ride has commenced a support vehicle will follow the route stopping at pre-arranged liaison points to provide mechanical assistance and/or transport for riders who need opt for a mid-ride bail out if required. Needless to say there’ll be plenty of feed stops along the way, with a chance to enjoy some delicious refreshments and friendly chat.
