Start and finish inside the Riverside Stadium, right next to the tunnel! We’ll line all the riders up right next to where the dugout is, what a start to a great day of cycling!

The medium route gets to enjoy a huge amount of what Teesside and Yorkshire has to offer. An urban start past the Old Town Clock, along to the Transporter Bridge and then onto the River Tees Cycle Path. When then head towards North Yorkshire, soon we are on Country roads, little villages and amazing hills and moorland which Yorkshire is famous for.

The Medium route visits Kildale feed stop twice. The first stop is your breakfast feed. Pastries, bananas, cereal bars and a Yorkshire brew! On the 2nd stop you’ll enjoy our local brownies and flapjack (York), Pork Pies and Sausage Rolls (Kippax, Leeds), Fresh Sarnies (York), a Yorkshire Brew and as much High 5 as you can get into your pockets!

The route to and from Kildale isn’t too challenging, some lumps but no mountains! However in between the 2 stops we enjoy some great climbs which of course bring the best views and of course, some exciting descents!

After Kildale we head back towards the Riverside, again on a mix of stunning Yorkshire and dramatic Urban roads. To finish we ride into the Riverside Stadium and back to Michal Carrick’s seat to receive your medal, a hot BBQ sausage bun (Kippax) and a chilled can of Erdinger Alkoholfrei. An amazing day out for any cyclist!


£5 of every entry fee is donated to the MFC Foundation
