Make no mistake, the Ryedale Rumble is a challenge. Choose the distance that suits you and your ability.
There are 3 routes. The Extreme route of 169.9 kilometres, a Challenge route of 120.5 kilometres, and an Inspire route of 79.3 kilometres. All routes encounter the inevitable hills of the North York Moors.
The Extreme and Challenge routes are aimed at experienced cyclists who want a serious test of fitness, endurance and stamina. With elevation gains of over 2,893m the extreme route takes in the now traditional monument climbs of Boltby Bank, Blakey Bank and Rosedale Chimney Bank. Challenge riders will take on the thrills and pain of an elevation gain of 1,744 metres while enjoying the beautiful moorland countryside. The Inspire route is for cyclists young or old, beginners or experienced, who want to extend their cycling ambitions with a 995 metre elevation gain to encounter.
The Ryedale Rumble allows riders to explore areas of the North York Moors national park, while raising money for Ryedale’s leading secondary school.
We were grateful to have received grant support from the North York Moors National Park Authority towards project costs for medical support, promotion, advertising and film creation. The main objective of the grant was to help us re-establish the Ryedale Rumble as an annual event on the cycling calendar.

What is a sportive?
Not a race, sportives are a great way to get into organised cycling events, giving you the chance to complete a fully signed and supported ride in a relaxed environment. Think of it as the marathon of the cycling world (or a fun run if the word ‘marathon’ brings you out in a cold sweat).
Riding a sportive allows you to explore a new area on your bike, in the knowledge that you are fully supported by event staff and surrounded by other enthusiastic participants.

Extreme: £35.00 in advance
Challenge: £30.00 in adavnce
