About the Heart of York Bike Ride

Choose from two circular routes, both starting from the historic city of York and taking in some of the best North Yorkshire moorland and countryside. Terrain is all road and suitable for road/mountain and hybrid bikes22 miles
Our 22 mile route provides flat, easy riding through moorland and countryside including the eerie moorland of Strensall Common. B roads throughout with checkpoints along the way.
Our 40 mile route which is our longest ride. Challenge yourself to take on the eerie moorland of Strensall Common, the Howardian Hills, pass Castle Howard, the undulating Bulmer Bank with a challenging 1 in 6 incline, and a tough ascent in the picturesque village of Hovingham followed by the very fast, long descent of the ‘straight as an arrow’ Terrington Bank on the way back to York.
Age Limit - This event is for riders aged 14 and over.
Safety - The BHF strongly advises all riders to wear a bicycle helmet.
We are unable to register riders under 16 years of age online - please call 01623 624 558 (option 3) to register.
