Distances: 65, 93 km
Difficulty: Difficult terrain with longer, steeper hills

A mix of dense woodland and open moorland is in store for you on this punchy ride through one of the most sparsely populated & beautiful areas of England. The Yorkshire Moors gravel ride covers a hilly 80km in a route through the National Park starting in the old market town of Thirsk. A relaxed 10km to warm up the legs before the first gravel section in Boltby forest which gets steeper towards the summit. After riding out into the open moorland, riders will enjoy uninterrupted gravel loops around the Bilsdale transmitter before a descent and much needed rest in the village of Hawnby. Another tough summit near Arden Hall and the reward is a cliff edge described as ‘The finest view in England’, in the words of local author James Herriot with flowing smooth gravel singletrack before a relaxed roll home to soak in the views of the vale of York and the impending cake.
