Event Summary

Event Overview

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

Now in its third 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.

We are delighted to welcome back Black Sheep as our major sponsor. The event HQ has therefore moved back to the Black Sheep Brewery Visitor Centre in Masham www.blacksheepbrewery.com. From here you have two routes to choose from;

The “Dessert Spoon” ride follows 55 miles of quiet, undulating roads through the lower reaches of Wensleydale heading north initially through the picturesque Hornby Park, before rising gradually to a glorious viewpoint at the top of Scarth Nick and a visit to the iconic Castle Bolton, before heading back down Wensleydale via Wensley, Middleham and Jervaulx Abbey.  There are two checkpoints along the route with hot and cold drinks and plenty of food, a support vehicle should you need mechanical assistance, not to mention three top tea rooms if required to enhance your enjoyment of the day.  Total climbing (none of which is worthy of a chevron on an O.S. map!) amounts to 3,200ft.

The “Serving Spoon” challenge is a hilly 87 mile ride, taking the same gentle start to the second checkpoint at Redmire, before heading up the long steady pull of Hargill Lane over to Grinton in Swaledale.  It comes back over the ridge via the north face of the Buttertubs pass, before heading back down Wensleydale to Redmire and then follows the same route back to Masham as the "Dessert Spoon" ride.  The two major climbs take the total climbing over the 87 miles to 6,400ft, but you will have three checkpoints with hot and cold drinks and food to replenish the energy used.

All riders will be welcomed back to the Black Sheep Brewery Visitor Centre with a complimentary hot meal and a pint of their award winning ale.

All profits and sponsorship monies raised will go to the Wooden Spoon Charity with every penny being used to help disadvantaged youngsters.  The two previous Big Spoon Bike Rides and the five Firkin Challenges have together raised over £60,000 to date for this great cause.
