Offering up our toughest sportive yet the Vyking charity bike ride takes in some of the most feared climbs in England. Alongside brutal ascents including Boltby Bank, the dreaded Rosedale Chimney will call on you to channel your inner Viking and summon up the power of Odin before attacking this top ten climb. With an average gradient of 13% and a maximum of 33%, it is the joint steepest paved road in England. This universally feared, chain-snapping, vicious, double hairpin stretch may only be 0.8m miles but the only ones amused by its one-in-three gradient will be the grazing sheep you'll be dodging!   


Alongside the brutal climbs, if you have time to look up, the routes offer miles of stunning views across Yorkshire as well as fantastic country lanes and roads through spectacular landscape.


Be a Vyking for the day with Action Medical Research on this charity cycle ride with first-class support throughout the day and help our fight for little lives.
