Last Minute News

The main road to Sutton Bank is closed at present. We have been told that it’s likely to be open by the end of today.

If it is still closed the best way is to take the A19 out of Thirsk towards York. About 1.5 miles after a garage look for a left turn towards Bagby. Go through Bagby and turn right at a T-junction (Past and old garage for sale), and drive to Kilburn, turn left at the T-junction and then take the first, left sign posted to the Gliding club. This is a steep climb will bring you to the top of Sutton Bank, turn left here and the Event centre is on your right.

Saturday 17th September Mountain Bike Ride

Heading off onto the North Yorkshire Moors via the local valleys, our routes take in the great trails and stunning views that the Yorkshire Moors offer.   Today’s routes have so much on offer, long exposed bridleways, lovely descents into deep valleys and of course the climbs out of the other side, the ground tends to remain hard packed and so provides excellent riding conditions.  If you would like to hire a bike from us, we have a full range of MTB bikes available just email hirebike@evanscycles.com
