Humber Bridge 100

106km cycling event starting from Welton, East Yorkshire. Controls at Keadby, plus 3 information controls.

A mainly flat ride crossing the rivers Ouse and Trent and returning to the picturesque village of Welton by crossing the longest cycleable suspension bridge in the world - the Humber Bridge: (includes 3km Off Road)

The Humber Bridge is currently the 8th longest single span suspension bridge in the world - unless you are a cyclist. None of the other bridge-builders have given the space for cycling that the designers of the Humber Bridge did. With cycle/footpaths either side riders get an excellent view in both directions unimpeded by the traffic. It is always worth pausing in any crossing to soak in the scale of engineering involved in linking Lincolnshire to Yorkshire. This new audax from VeloClub 167 and St Helen's Church starts in the picturesque village of Welton, home to the famous 10 mile Time Trial route, V178/1 with its blistering fast section of A63 dual carriageway - although thankfully we don't need to use it, instead our ride heads into the quiet country lanes along the banks of the Humber Estuary before crossing the river Ouse to reach Hook, then crossing the river Trent at Keadby Bridge. After a totally flat ride, the climb to the North Lincolnshire Wolds may seem tough, but the views of the estuary and the Humber Bridge are worth it. Note, there are approximately 3km of unpaved road, but this is very rideable even on skinny tyres.
