Ready, get set, go!

YuCycle, our charity challenge bike ride, returns for 2017, and we hope to tempt you to join us.

Saddle up and ride through the picturesque dales of North Yorkshire with friends – either for fun, the challenge or for the charity of your choice. This year’s entrance fee goes to supporting mental health at the University, so it’s a worthwhile cause.

Now in its fifth year, this University-organised event involves the whole community as staff, students and alumni ride one of our 25, 50 or 100km routes. So get on your bike on Sunday 11 June. The countdown is on – sign up today!

£40,000 raised for good causes at York and beyond since our first YuCycle event in 2013

£9,600 raised from last year’s event

£500 given to 10 national or international-standard scholars supported as a result of the funds raised from YuCycle in 2016/17
