Thinking of taking on the Beast?

Read Peter’s Story

Back for another year, the toughest day on a bike there is! Climb 15,000ft over 200 miles whilst chased by the Yorkshire Beast at 12.5mph. When he catches you, it’s game over!

A new HQ for year 3, Carlton Miniott Outdoor Centre which was feed 1 in 2019. It’s better positioned for Beasted riders as its close to feed 3 Alne should you bail out! The facilities are great and it’s more accessible from the A1/ A19 with more local hotel choices.

400 people have now Beaten The Beast but many have failed, only a select few have tried and succeed twice, if those select riders whish to go for the hattrick they can do so for free, just drop us an email! Places in the Beast Triple Club and the most exclusive!

Everyone who rides the Beast tells us it’s the toughest Sportive there is, they draw a comparison with other ultra-challenge events and without question, the Beast is the toughest!

A day to remember forever! Enter now and set your goal high for 2021, you will not have a bigger challenge.
