This year’s charity challenge ride event will be held on Sunday 2nd July, with the 40, 60 and 100 mile routes slightly amended from 2022 to take account of members’ comments and, of course, the closure of Aldwark Bridge.
Each route has been designed to provide an enjoyable ride and offer a suitable challenge whatever your ability. There will not be any other club rides on the day.
Supporting the Yorkshire Air Ambulance
Although the event is primarily intended for Wheel Easy members, we would also welcome any family and friends who are looking for a great day’s cycling in support of our chosen charity the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Founded on October 25th 2000 the Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a lifesaving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across the whole of Yorkshire.
