The Vyking will rise again!

We are excited to announce that RIDE Vyking will return on 5 June 22 from our new venue at Queen Ethelburga's

All registered participants will have received an email from us. If this is you, and you haven’t received anything, please check spam or junk folders, before contacting us by email.


As a Yorkshire rider myself I am developing an exciting new route for RIDE Vyking, one which I think you'll love even more and will prove to be popular amongst the Yorkshire community. There will still be lots of incredible views and climbs to remember!

Steph, Event Manager

Our route's are still under construction and will be updated soon, watch this space!

Action Cyclists


Brilliant organisation, superb signage along the well thought out and beautiful route. The volunteers deserve lots of praise because without their help, cakes, jelly babies and other essential food we would not have got round. Many many thanks.

I’ve had the pleasure of being involved with quite a few Action events now and I love the fact that you can sign up to one of Action’s Ride100 events and know that – as well as having a great time and challenging yourself – you’ll also be helping to save tiny lives.
