North Yorkshire Moors Coastal Cycle Challenge

In memory of Norman Scholes

The NYMCCC did not take place in 2019 and unfortunately the ongoing Covid19 situation has meant we have been unable to organise an event since then. If we get back on track further details including an application form will be available on this site NYMCCC.UK next spring for an event with a tentative date of Sunday October 2nd 2022.

For some years the NYMCCC has been an annual cycle ride starting from Fylingdales Village Hall at the top of Robin Hood’s Bay. It follows the Cinder Track (old railway line) to Whitby and returns past the start point, then via Ravenscar, to the outskirts of Scarborough. The return route from Scarborough leaves the track at Ravenscar and follows the road for a short climb to Stoupe Brow mast, the highest point in the area, the road then drops down to re-join the track and continues to finish and refreshments at Fylingdales Village Hall. The event is not a race and the challenge is to complete the 38 mile ride. The track, as the name suggests, is mostly surfaced with cinders, it can be a little bumpy and muddy in parts after rain, there are some lengthy climbs, but none too steep as it was formerly a railway line.


Entry fee £12 which includes a certificate for all completions and a medal for under 6 hours.
