Welcome to the York Rally! 72 years ago, one of the greatest British cycling events was created right here in beautiful Yorkshire. Since 1945, The York Rally has been a firm favourite on the cycling calendar. Held on York’s Knavesmire (a large, marshy undeveloped areas within the city of York), the event is entirely free of charge!
The event is truly a cycling spectacle to behold, offering one of the largest assembly of cycle tourers, grass-track and grass-roots racers and historic cycle experts. For those involved, cycling is more than a simple hobby, it is an all-consuming way of life. There is always a friendly expert on hand for those who want to learn more about this great sport. Applications to join Friends of York Rally, can do so at the event. This brilliant organisation is responsible to organising the York Rally – enjoyed by young and old alike (email: [email protected])
This year the rally will be held on Saturday 24 June and Sunday 25 June. The event is very popular amongst enthusiast and spectators, drawing major interest from British Schools Cycling Association’s National Grasstrack Championships (Saturday) to cyclo-cross races from the Yorkshire Cyclo-Cross Association on Sunday, with many young rider classes.
Numerous led rides head out from the Rally, from under five miles to over 100! There are many short, safe family-friendly and traffic-free outings, as well as more challenging routes for more experienced cyclists. On Sunday, a cycle ride will be organised to Naburn for a cycling church service.
