Acorn 100k Sponsored Bike Ride

Cycle Sportive , North Yorkshire – Saturday, 09 May 2015

Registered Sportive

Event Summary

Event Overview

The Acorn Charity raises funds for people with dementia and their carers in the Harrogate, Ripon and Wetherby area and for research into Scleroderma disease at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.  This is our nineth sponsored Acorn Bike Ride and last year we had nearly 600 cyclists with over 100 volunteers join us and we raised nearly £40,000 for the projects we support.

The route is a circular,  with plenty of comfort breaks.  It's a very special day of cycling and suitable for all standards of cyclists  .  The route is relatively flat through Bishop Monkton Village to Roecliffe and then through Boroughbridge. This has a busy town centre on a Saturday so please take care. The route then takes us north east to Brafferton and across through Raskelf to Easingwold, where there are public toilets.  We then go east to Stillington, before turning north at Marton Priory to Stearsby. Turning south east, we head for a light lunch in Sheriff Hutton Village Hall.

The second part of the route takes you south west to Sutton-on-the-Forest, Huby and Tollerton, then crossing the River Ure at Aldwark. Then through Great Ouseburn and Marton-***-Grafton and crossing the A1 before reaching Arkendale.

The last part of the route takes us through Staveley, Copgrove and back to Bishop Monkton. Where you can enjoy tea and plenty of home baking.
