The Great Yorkshire Bike Ride
The Great Yorkshire Bike Ride is one of those lucky events, which is all things to all people. It’s a great cycling event, one of the biggest around. It’s a fantastic, beautiful route across the best of Yorkshire. It’s a great day out, and it continues to raise large amounts of money for charity projects. It is also one of very few one-way events rather than the normal circular route. Perhaps that is one of the big attractions, to actually go somewhere. This does make the logistics of the event somewhat harder though!
Trailtrekker is the ultimate endurance challenge. You’ll need to get your team of four 40, 65 or 100km across the Yorkshire Dales in under 30 hours.

Tour de France
A voluntary team that helped the 2014 Tour de France race through the Yorkshire Dales has received radio equipment worth about £5,500. The Radio Amateurs’ Emergency Network (RAYNET) provided communications over 2,000 square miles in North Yorkshire.
Radios were operated by 42 volunteers. The money has been donated by North Yorkshire County Council.
The volunteers will also provide communications on the Tour de Yorkshire cycling event in May.
The Tour de France generated £102m in revenue on the two stages across Yorkshire, watched by 2.5m spectators.
During the race the radio network linked control rooms in Skipton, Richmond, Harrogate, York and Wakefield.
Brian Dooks, a member of RAYNET, said: “We are grateful for the donation, which will be used to purchase and replace equipment.
“Some members slept in their cars to be ready to operate from 4am each day. It was not easy, but nobody who worked on the Tour will forget being involved in something very special.”
