Black Sheep Big Spoon Bike Ride routes

Our bike ride is on open roads through glorious countryside in North Yorkshire. Where possible, the route sticks to back lanes and quieter roads to avoid traffic. There are scheduled checkpoints along the routes…….and there are plenty of places for unscheduled tea stops as well.

The 87 mile route starts from Masham and heads out through Swaledale and back via Wensleydale. There are glorious views along the way… well as plenty of hills. This will be a challenging day out.

Our 55 mile route is still a challenge, but it is designed with plenty of places for tea stops! The route also starts from Masham, and you will get the same glorious views…. but fewer hills! If you haven’t been on your bike for a while, and you need a worthwhile target to train towards, this is the route for you.

    Superbly organised event, sign postings at every junction, plenty of support, snacks on-route and a beer and bite to finish off with. FANTASTIC !
