Packetts Tour De Dales – Charity Bike Ride Challenge

We are once again staging the Packetts Tour De Dales, over the weekend of the 18th and 19th May 2019.

Packetts raise awareness and funds for the Bradford Charity, One In A Million who continue to provide vital services to some our regions’ most deserving children and young adults :

Now in its 4th year, the Ride grows from strength to strength, and places are now open on a fist come first served basis, using this link to Registration on the One In a Million website :!event/2019/5/18/packetts-tour-de-dales-2019-cycle-challenge

Our Ride is a fully supported sportive (not a race) with riders of mixed ability, from genuine beginner to totally obsessed !!

It starts on the Saturday morning leaving Packetts carpark in Saltaire, and riders have a choice of 2 routes to get to Theakston’s Brewery in Masham. The brewery turn their pub over to us for the Saturday evening and we arrange a complimentary hog-roast to help wash a few beers down after a day in the saddle. We then return to Guiseley on Sunday, again in one of 2 groups, finishing with a presentation ceremony.

Packetts will cover all costs (other than any accommodation) so that all entry monies and any sponsorship can go directly to the OIAM coffers.

The routes will be as challenging as you want them, with options for harder, longer and hillier miles, plus short cuts for anyone who might need them.

Further information on training rides, the routes and guides, will follow to those who sign up, and we really look forward to seeing you at what has proved to be a challenging, inspiring but great fun event.
