There’s a weekend of cycling fun ahead on the Knavesmire – as the York Cycle Rally returns for 2023.
The annual event attracts cyclists from across the country and the world, for a weekend of celebrating all things cycling. It features a packed programme of rides, a trade show, live music, children’s activities, food and real ale bar, and more.
York Cycle Rally will take place from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 June and it’s free to enter.
The York Cycle Rally has been a regular fixture on York’s summer calendar since 1945.
The family-friendly event is completely run by volunteers, and also offers camping on site.
It’ll kick off on Friday evening, when campers start to arrive. The first ride of the rally will be the ‘Chips and Pub’ ride – a 16-mile-round evening ride to Deighton then on to Bishopthorpe for a pint. There will also be a quiz in the evening.
The event will then be open from 10am on Saturday and Sunday.
Cycle rides over the weekend include a tour of the Ainsty, a ride to Stamford Bridge, the Solar System Greenway, a church service ride, a ride to Skipwith and Selby – and much more.
Rides are all free to join.
As well as rides, the programme includes an auction sale, talks, live music, saddlebag sale, and children’s activities – such as a treasure hunt and wildlife fun.
One of the organisers of the event, Peter Eland, said “Kids love cycling and if you’re looking for a low cost family day out please do come along. You don’t have to be a cyclist or bring a bike, all are welcome.”
