Two rides of note coming up this week.
The first is on Thursday (24th August) is this season's YorkCross opener. Get your knobbly tyres out and get ready for a couple of hours blasting around York's hidden gems of trails, singletracks, cobbles and even beaches.
In case you needed a reminder of how good these late Summer YorkCross rides can be, here's a video from a previous edition.
YorkCross will leave from outside York Art Gallery at 6pm this Thursday.
Fancy going long this weekend? Rob Pape is organising another Tan Hill epic. It'll be a long day in the saddle, and so an early start is in order. The Tan Hill ride will be leaving from the roundabout where Beckfield Lane meets Wetherby Road (map) at 7:30am on Saturday.
If you're going to do a Tan Hill ride, August is probably the right time to do it!
