    Cleveland Wheelers Big Club Run Challenge

    The classic Ryedale Rumble Sportive has sadly been cancelled but we would like to offer an alternative by taking the Club Run on its biggest challenge! Weather permitting it will be on Sunday the 26th August the week before the planned date for the Ryedale so avoiding a clash with the Castleton 50 in 4 Tourist Trial The proposed route is much shorter than the Rumble but in terms of climbing just as tough. Starting at Ayton the route will go: Kildale, Commondale, Castleton, Ainthorpe, Great Fryup to do the Street Climb (1st Category), Glaisdale, Caper Hill (Hors Category), Rosedale, Chimney Bank (Hors Category), Hutton le Hole, Farndale, Blakey Bank (Hors Category) descend to Castelton Tea shop for the finish and celebratory tea cake, from here people can make their own way home however they wish, although there will probably be a group riding back to Ayton. Another option is to start and finish at C

    astleton if you want to make your own way there.

    This would be an unsupported ride in that you would have to carry all your food and drink yourself, we would ride as a group (if possible) rather than for a quick time but riders must be realistic about their own ability and endurance – this will be a very tough ride – see map and ride profile! The Chimney, Caper Hill and Blakey Bank are probably the 3 hardest climbs on the North York Moors and Street is also very tough – read the Hill Climbs section on the club website to get an idea of severity. Walking the whole way up them would not be practical! That said we won’t be racing round and will regroup at the top of the climbs. There will be numerous options to cut it short but you will have to turn up with a degree of self-sufficiency so you know you can get home.

    Date/Time: Sunday 26th August, start Great Ayton 9.30 am slower riders, 10.00am faster riders, Castleton10.45am

    Distances: Ayton to Castleton 46.5 miles, Castleton start 35 miles (57.5 if riding back to Ayton)

    Estimated time: 3 to 3.5 hours for 46.8 mile route 2 to 2.5 for 35 mile route

    Climbing in Feet: 5,555 for full route

    Rode this today, tough but superb ride with a lot, and I mean a lot of climbing. Took slight detour at Egton up Limber Hill which added a fair few miles and a few more brutal climbs I didnt even know existed at Street (killer) and over the moors which I think is called Pike Hill to Rosedale, another three in total, before descending into Rosedale to tackle the Chimney. Then down to Farndale and up the hideous Blakey Bank, and back home through Castleton and Kildale.

    81 very tough miles in total in 5 hours

    Very windy up there today. Some vicious crosswinds to at the top which didn’t help. Think maybe about 15 out today. Some really strong riders which helped drag me along and up the hills 🙂
