Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge 2020 

Why Ride With Us 

A different kind of charity bike ride 
The Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge is a unique fundraising event that in the past 9 years has gained a reputation amongst riders as ‘the friendly one’. 
 
Whilst it’s a challenging two-day event that’s recognised by British Cycling, this isn’t a competition, race or sportive reserved for serious riders. 
 
We actively encourage riders of all ages, abilities and experience levels to get involved, have fun and push themselves, and the challenge is particularly popular with female riders (almost half of our entry is female).

What makes the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge special? 
Non-competitive 
this isn’t a race or a sportive event. It’s designed to be a fun, challenging and inclusive fundraiser, with entrants supporting each other and riding together in aid of a great cause.

Social 
community spirit is a big part of the event. We want people to enjoy themselves, support each other and have fun together. Relaxing over a couple of beers and nice food at the overnight camp is a great chance to make new friends, socialise and make the most of the challenge.

Support 
riders are supported at every pedal of the way from a dedicated team. In addition to trained first aiders, we have a mechanical support team, and ‘Guardian Angel’ riders, there to provide motivation and support to anyone who needs it. We’ll even transport your gear to the overnight camp! 
Challenging 
cycling 144 miles in 2 days over hilly terrain is no mean feat! Whether you’re teambuilding, looking to push your limits or just along for the ride, this event will provide you with a worthwhile challenge.
