Our Vyking riders will assemble for this brand new Yorkshire bike ride in the grounds of Ampleforth College where the serene backdrop of the Abbey will lull all into a false sense of security ahead of a less than gentle Sunday morning ride out.

This early season sportive promises a thigh-busting ride that will leave you gasping as you take on 6473ft of gain on the longer route and 2999ft of gain on the shorter route.

Offering up our toughest sportive yet the Vyking charity bike ride takes in some of the most feared climbs in England. Alongside brutal ascents including Boltby Bank, the dreaded Rosedale Chimney will call on you to channel your inner Viking and summon up the power of Odin before attacking this top ten climb. With an average gradient of 13% and a maximum of 33% it is the joint steepest paved road in England. This universally feared, chain-snapping, vicious, double hairpin stretch may only be 0.8m miles but the only ones amused by its one-in-three gradient will be the grazing sheep you’ll be dodging!

Alongside the brutal climbs, if you have time to look up, the routes offer miles of stunning views across Yorkshire as well as fantastic country lanes and roads through spectacular landscape.

Be a Vyking for the day with Action Medical Research on this charity cycle ride with first class support throughout the day and help our fight for little lives.

Classic Route - 58 Miles
Champion Route - 101 Miles
