North Yorkshire Moors MTB Weekend June 8th 9th 2019


Nearest Campsite is Golden Square Caravan and Camping Site about 5k south of Helmsley.
GR SE603796.
Website Rather expensive but cheaper than B&B.
There is a Youth Hostel in Helmsley and various other hotels etc


Two rides Planned.
Saturday is the Helmsley Loop. Approx.. 30k starting from Helmsley but easy to ride to the start from the campsite. 3 miles each way.

Saturday 8th. Meet by the Lord Feversham monument in the Helmsley market place at 10.30.   We will ride the “Helmsley Loop”. which is about 30k.  The only refreshment stop is after only 3 miles so you will need to take food and drink with you.

 Sunday start is from the visitor centre at the top of Sutton Bank. Parking charges apply. About 9k from the campsite. This is a shorter route of about 25k but will allow people to head off home a bit earlier if they wish.

Sunday 9th    Meet at the entrance to the visitor centre at the top of Sutton Bank on the A170 at 10.00.  The earlier start will allow an earlier depart for anyone going home on Sunday. The ride is in the Boltby and Arden Hall area north of Sutton Bank and is about 32k.  Again you will need to carry food and drink.   

Let’s hope the weather is as good as last year!
