Welcome to the one and only White Rose Latte Hunters! We are a group of cyclists who have become friends through the joy of Latte and toasted teacakes!! Our mission is to find the best toasted teacakes & latte whilst enjoying the outdoors! We don’t just do road cycling, Oh no we like to mix it up with a few Trailquests, Adventure races and Triathlons as they say variety is the spice of life!
We do like to get out together for group rides although this has become more difficult over recent years with some members leaving the country for months at a time, some starting racing.. again, Heart problems, family commitments, work commitments, etc…. But when we do get out it’s good crack! Everybody dishing out the pain when ever possible!
When we do venture out as a group usually on a Friday morning or Sunday morning it is almost always a road route. Our typical run out will involve a route from Wakefield / Birkenshaw areas which will normally be between 40-50 miles but sometimes 100+, and most of the time does involve stopping off at a cafe to test the teacakes and latte. Don’t worry if you think you are too slow, we will drop you like a stone but we will wait at the top of the hill or a safe place to stop i.e café! but to give you an idea of our speeds we normally ride at an average of around 15mph maybe more depending who is out!
We have had a annual trip to “Le Tour” since 2009 which tends to be painful for more than one reason but is a FAN-TAS-TIC trip and well worth the effort. Make sure your on the next trip!
