RtN is an inclusive event that seeks to work for everyone who enjoys riding a bike – you don’t need to ride a road bike (the majority do), you only need to be confident that you can ride 80-90 miles inside 8-9 hours in the saddle …and then get up and do it all again the next day!! The event begins at 8am (for the first riders – who feel they need maximum time) and we aim to have you finished by 6pm. How you get there is up to you, but you won’t be short of support along the way. In 2016, we reached 30% female participants for the first time .
Our event owes a huge thank you to sponsors, many volunteers and to the local communities along the route for their patience and understanding for a couple of hours when riders pass through. Ride the North is both a celebration of cycling and our local area. Thank you to all those who have supported us along the way.
