Sign Up Now For Two-Day Charity Cycling Challenge
Registrations are now open for the 2022 Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge – and we’re aiming to make this year’s event bigger and better than ever.
We’re looking to smash our records for participants and the total amount raised so we’re appealing to riders of all ages and abilities to sign up now.
Over the 11 years it has been running, the challenge has raised an incredible £250,000 for Ryedale Special Families (RSF), an amazing charity which provides care and support for more than 450 families whose children are disabled or have additional needs.
This fun but demanding sportive will take place over Saturday and Sunday, 2 and 3 July 2022, taking in the 144 miles of the circular Sustrans National Cycling Network Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route along the beautiful country lanes of the Yorkshire Wolds.
Organiser Rob Davies, Fundraising Coordinator for RSF, said: “We’re aiming to sign up as many people as possible to take part this year as more riders means more money raised for Ryedale Special Families. This is a fantastic charity which helps and supports hundreds of families in our area and which, like so many similar organisations, has had its funding affected by the Covid pandemic.”
He added: “The Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge is a really friendly ride where there’s lots of encouragement and camaraderie, and a great atmosphere in the halfway camp. The number of participants is limited to 200 so I’m urging people to secure their place by signing up as soon as possible and encouraging their friends and cycling buddies to do the same.”
Starting and finishing at Norton College, near Malton, the challenge covers approximately 72 miles each day, with an overnight halfway camp, complete with barbecue, Wold Top real ale, and live music.
Entry includes secure parking at Norton College, luggage transfer to the halfway camp and back, organised refreshment points, "guardian angel" support cyclists, mechanical support, first-aid back-up, barbecue and breakfast, secure bike park at halfway, completion certificate and goody bag.
The entry fee is £60 plus a commitment to raise a minimum £70 in additional sponsorship to help RSF continue to provide invaluable support to so many families.
