Cycling the quiet lanes of the Yorkshire Wolds

Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge 'VIRTUAL 2020'  Friday 4th July - Saturday 31st July 2020 PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS AND TO ENTER 

Get on your bike this summer and raise money for Ryedale Special Families charity. 

Coronavirus has forced the cancellation of our usual 144-mile challenge, so we’ve gone digital! Complete the distance however you want to and raise money to help children and young people with disabilities, illness and additional needs in North Yorkshire. 
How it works 
This year, entrants will be completing the challenge ‘virtually’ – by cycling the 144 miles on local roads, or on an exercise bike at home (or in a gym if restrictions at the time allow). Riders can complete the challenge at any time between Saturday 4th July – Friday 31st July 2020, in as many rides as they wish. 
Entry to the event is free and entrants are also asked to set a fundraising target of at least £50, with all money raised going to support Ryedale Special Families. 
Every entrant will receive a certificate for completing the challenge – and those raising more than £144 will receive a special commemorative t shirt. 
Who can ride? 
The Virtual 2020 Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge is open to everyone. Since our launch in 2011, we’ve built a reputation as a friendly, all-inclusive event. 
This isn’t a competition, race or sportive reserved for serious riders – it’s an exciting fundraising event for riders of all ages and abilities. Entrants will be encouraged to share their progress, and to join the community on Facebook and Strava. 
Entry and fundraising 
Entry is free but we’re asking that riders set a fundraising goal of at least £50 – with all money going to Ryedale Special Families. 
Get involved and register for the Virtual 2020 today. 
When can I enter? 
We're expecting completion of our brand new, free website on or about 11th June. This will include full details of the event, as well as Registration Form, Sponsorship Details and how to join the Strava 'VIRTUAL 2020' Club! 
If you'd like to pre-register and receive details as soon as the new website is open for entries please email 
Every penny raised will go to help Ryedale Special Families continue to provide its services through this difficult time.
