An outstanding cycling experience in an area of exceptional beauty

The Vale of York and the Yorkshire Wolds, plus the magnificent Castle Howard and the Howardian Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) are just some of the highlights you’ll see on the York 100 charity cycling sportive. You can experience some of the best cycling terrain in England on this bike ride raising funds for vital medical research to help sick and disabled babies and children.   

If you are relatively new to cycling you may want to try our Classic 65 mile route which will provide you with a great ride and a fantastic challenge. Or if you’re an experienced cyclist or sportive rider the Champion route at 100 miles is the perfect distance to push yourself to the limit.

Join the Action Medical Research team on this charity cycling event and enjoy a great day in the saddle with first class support throughout the day.


"You can always expect a great day in the saddle with Action Medical Research – I know, I’ve cycled with them. Their RIDE100 series has events taking place all over the UK and a range of route distances to suit all cyclists."
Sir Dave Brailsford
