Route and times

Choose from two circular routes, either 26 or 41 miles. Both routes start from the historic city of York and take in some of North Yorkshire's breathtaking countryside. 

The routes are on road and suitable for road, mountain and hybrid bikes. All riders must wear a helmet. No roads are closed and both routes are along B roads.  

26 miles

Our 26 mile route provides flat, easy riding through farmland and countryside including the eerie moorland of Strensall Common.  

41 miles

Our tougher and longer 41 mile route.

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 fast, long descent of the ‘straight as an arrow’ Terrington Bank on the way back to York.

 Registrations  08:45 - 10:15 
 Event start  09:00 - 10:30 (staggered)
