This self-supported bikepacking event on 13/14 July 2024 takes you in two days around the dramatic scenery of the Yorkshire Coast and North York Moors National Park. It is the perfect way to experience the Route YC Adventure Weekender Route, following the same successful formula as the Dashes in the Cateran Ecomuseum and Dunoon.

Your entry fee of £95 includes: Route as GPX for navigation, electronic rider briefing, campsite, evening meal, breakfast, broom wagon.
