The Ride

The Cafe Bash attracts in the region of 200 riders from across Yorkshire. The Cafe Bash brings clubs, teams and individuals together for a fierce but fun day on the bike for all abilities.

Sign on

Join us in the Prologue cafe for a pre-ride caffeine kick and short briefing. Sign on will begin at 9:15am (£4 per rider). Following a route briefing the ride will begin promptly at 9:30am.

The pace

The Cafe Bash welcomes cyclists of all abilities. Ride the route with friends, club mates or team up with fellow cyclists en route. Riders will set off in small groups, organised by estimated average pace (20+, 18+, 16+ 14+ 12+).

A reliability ride is known as a test of a cyclist’s reliability and that of their bike coming out of the winter period.  The emphasis is on fitness, self-reliance and navigational skills, although they are also used by competitive cyclists for training ahead of the racing season.
The route is not signposted but a basic route map or description may be provided (along with a GPS file these days). There are no feedstations, timing chips or souvenir t-shirts etc, although refreshments are available following the ride.

The ride is not a race.  Like a normal cycling club ride, it takes place on open roads and without marshals etc.  It is imperative that participants ride responsibly and in accordance with the Highway Code.
