How difficult is the course

The ‘Superb’ long route includes some steep climbs and meets the British Cycling definition of ‘Tough Route’. We would recommend that the longer route is attempted only by riders with a regular training regime.

The ‘Rapid’ shorter route is more moderate but still has a couple of fairly meaningful climbs for good measure! It should be challenging without being impossible for casual cyclists but we would still recommend several rides over a similar distance prior to the event.

Do I need a helmet?

YES - British Cycling insures the event and their regulations require a helmet to be worn.


Please take your litter home in your pocket. Don’t destroy our landscape or place wildlife at risk. Chances are that if you do other riders will “out” you.

First Aid

First Aid coverage will be provided at the HQ, however given the large area to cover you should contact the NHS emergency services in a serious emergency. It would be very helpful if a fellow rider could make contact on the event incident number (0750686214) to advise us of this.


Please make sure that you carry a pump, a spare inner tube or tubular tyre and a basic tool kit, ideally a multi-tool device. The team at our feed stations will assist you where they can and we will attempt to rescue you if totally immobilised. The route is challenging please pay particular attention to brakes, gears and tyres in preparing your bike.

Our Team

We are supported by British Cycling Yorkshire Region, a group of volunteers who give up our time freely to support cycling. By the time this event takes to the road the team will have spent most weekends and often days between keeping the wheels turning on our sport. We hope to enjoy working with you and we hope that you will enjoy being with us for your day out in Yorkshire.
