The Yorkshire Mountain Bike Marathon is organised by Birdsall Estate and Northern Ride bicycle shop in Malton. Set entirely across Birdsall Estate the off-road marathon is run for one day a year and offers unique and challenging rides across land that is otherwise closed to public access. The event is inclusive and suitable for a variety of abilities, some will look to get a fast time and others will look to complete the challenge in their own time.
There are three organised and signposted routes; 25k, 40k or 80k. These offer varying degrees of steep slopes and challenging routes through woods, down steep slopes and up dales. With a high level of organisation and stewardship as well as catering available this makes a really great family day out.
This year’s marathon was held on Sunday 12th June 2022.
