Those who fancy jumping on mountain bikes
and taking on a new challenge may be interested in an event held in the North York Moors National Park later this month.
Run by the park authority ranger Simon Bassindale, it offers riders an 11-mile route to enjoy, with a red and blue rating, setting out from Saltergate car park after meeting at 11:00 BST, with the ride going on until 14:00.
It is described as an intermediate level track and could appeal to those who show up in their cycle clothing having long since left behind the beginner stage, but are not yet ready for elite-level challenges.
Riders who fancy a bigger challenge may include those taking part in the Exmoor Bike Marathon this Saturday (September 11th).
Based in Minehead, the marathon is run to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation and participants can choose between challenges of 12.5, 25, 50, 75 or 100 km.
