The Tour de France organisers think that Yorkshire is a great place to ride a bike and we do too! York 100 is our most popular RIDE 100 series event in northern England - take part, enjoy a fantastic day in the saddle in lovely countryside and help fund vital medical research for babies and children.
Starting from the University of York on the edge of this historic city, riders head off on a tough but scenic challenge – going out via quiet roads to the cycling paradise of the Yorkshire Wolds and back via the Howardian Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty. This is a great ride for all, whether you’re a novice or experienced rider, with the right mix of climbs and descents.
