Behind the scenes work

The work continues getting everything ready for the 2018 Ryedale Rumble!!

One key job is route marking so last Saturday our event director Lizzie was out all day plotting and photographing all the locations for the signs.

Luckily she had her family with her so they managed to squeeze in a picnic amongst all the stopping and starting but it was a long day driving over 100 miles!

The work didn’t end when Lizzie got home either. There will be four teams going out the day before to put up all the signs, each will have their own folder with all the sign locations identified both on a route map and with a photograph, just to make sure.

It’s this kind of attention to detail that we hope will make the Ryedale Rumble, though a challenge, an enjoyable and safe experience for all our riders. Next year of course it will be so much easier!

Huge thanks to Lizzie and co.

Feed station yumminess

The Ryedale Rumble is renowned for being one of the most scenic sportives in the country and our feed stations are located in three stunning locations:

Helmsley – we’ll be pitched up at the Primary School which is one of the feeder schools (no pun intended) for Ryedale School who we are raising money for with this event. Visit Helmsley tells you all you need to know about this lovely market town so try and find some time, pre or post ride, to have a potter around.

Hutton le Hole – you’ll be directed to the public car park for our feed station in this moorland village. It’s a great place for your friends and family to have a cream tea or an ice cream before cheering you on to the finish. And there’s the award-winning Ryedale Folk Museum which you’ll need a couple of hours for. Continue reading “Feed station yumminess”
