Join us for a road cycling weekend in the North York Moors, based in Pickering. No accommodation is included but there are lots of local options, the leader will be staying over on Friday and Saturday night. You are welcome to just come for the day. 

Day 2 - check out Day 1 here

Today we'll have an easier day with less elevation, taking in in the beautiful Howardian Hills and North Yorkshire Wolds, riding past Castle Howard, then through the hidden valleys of the Wolds. We'll have lunch in Malton and then head back to Pickering. If you are going home by train, you can end the ride at the station in Malton after around 65km.

Pace and Terrain

All on road, mostly gently rolling. 

The event pace and route is designed for road bikes rather than hybrids and is aimed at those who are reasonably bike fit, however the day is intended to be an outing rather than an endurance test. We will stop for slower riders to catch up whilst going faster in between stops to allow them to develop their technique and fitness. Broadly, anyone who has recently cycled over 50km and who has tackled some hills without too much difficulty will be able to complete this ride.
