Evans Cycles Ride It! 2015 Leeds | Events

If you’re looking for a cycling event to attend this year, Evans Cycles are hosting their annual Ride It! in Leeds, starting in the grounds of Harewood House on Sat 7th – Sun 8th March 2015.

What is the Evans Ride It! event?

Ride It! will be a chance to ride your bike with hundreds of fellow cyclists of all abilities in the scenic countryside of the Wharf Valley in North Yorkshire (where we live!). Starting near Harewood House and with three different marked routes of varying length to choose from, the only thing you need to worry about is the weather.

The Leeds cycling event is not a race though. It’s a non-technical, off-road ride of between 15 and 33 miles (depending on your route) – perfect for a day out with the family or friends. We’ll be heading down in March to check out what’s on offer.

Here’s what you need to know:
