Event Summary

Event Overview

Stunning scenery, quiet roads and good company; what more could you want from a cycle challenge? How about a great cause?!

Now in its second year, the Big Spoon Bike Ride is building on the success of the original Black Sheep Brewery sponsored “Firkin Challenge” rides by raising money for disadvantaged and disabled children and young people in Yorkshire whilst enjoying some of England’s finest scenery.

From the event HQ at Ripon Rugby Club www.riponrugby.org there are two routes to choose from;

The “Dessert Spoon” ride follows 50 miles of quiet, undulating roads through the lower reaches of Wensleydale via Jervaulx Abbey to Coverham and Middleham, returning via Masham and passing at least three top tea rooms to enhance your enjoyment of the day. There are two checkpoints along the route together with a support vehicle should you need mechanical assistance. Total climbing (none of which is worthy of a chevron on an O.S. map!) amounts to 2,400ft.

The “Serving Spoon” challenge is a hilly 100 mile ride, taking the same gentle start up to Coverham then heading up Bishopdale and over the “Cote de Cray” into Wharfedale before dropping down the valley as far as Appletreewick. The Old School Tea Room at Hebden is a tempting stop as the route from Appletreewick heads up the long climb to Greenhow! From Greenhow the route continues over to Summerbridge then on to Pateley Bridge, up to Lofthouse followed by the steep climb over to Masham. The route back to Ripon then follows the same roads as the “Dessert Spoon” ride. There are three major climbs taking the total climbing over the 102 miles to 6,600ft.

All profits and sponsorship monies raised will go to the Wooden Spoon Charity with every penny being used to help disadvantaged youngsters. Last year’s Big Spoon Bike Ride and the five Firkin cycle challenges have together raised over £59,000 to date for this great cause.
