Route information
The Top of the Rock Gravel Sportive mixes a relaxed and fun ethos with the challenge of trails ranging from smooth and flowing to technically & physically challenging. From rock strewn gullies to fast gravel singletrack, forest tracks and wide open moorland trails this event has it all- including of course our beautiful & wild autumn weather.
Top Of The Rock is suitable for riders of all fitness and skill levels. Simply choose the appropriate distance (Distances approximate). The nature of the course is generally open terrain and flowing trails with a series of steep but relatively short climbs. As this is a sportive you can always choose to start early in the day to give yourself sufficient time to complete any of the distances riding at a reasonable speed.

Kit list
Gravel and Cross bikes are the most suitable machines for this course but short travel hardtail mountain bikes will also be perfectly suitable. (If you prefer to ride a long travel enduro rig, then thats up to you!) Hybrids could be used but care would need to be taken on the descents.
E-Bikes are welcome at Top of the Rock
Sutton Bank Bikes
Our unique partnership with North York Moors National Park puts our state of the art shop at the head of a fast developing Wildride Trails network. Spectacular views, several grades of stunning singletrack loops and a much loved skills area 1000ft up on the moors yet alongside the main road gateway to the National Park make Sutton Bank Bikes an ultimate bucket list destination.
