The York Rally is a grand weekend of grassroots cycling which has been held on York’s Knavesmire almost every year since 1945. It’s run purely for the love of cycling by an all-volunteer team from across the North of England, and it’s a fantastic free day out whether you cycle already or not.
Entry, parking and almost all activities are completely free!
A top class racing venue
Many great Olympic and Paralympic cyclists started out on grasstrack circuits like the historic York Rally Arena. Hundreds of children will start that inspiring journey at the Rally with our young rider taster sessions and races. Watch or join in yourself with British Cycling Go-Ride, Yorkshire Cyclo-Cross and many friendly local clubs.
Bag a bargain
Looking for a new bike, or some classic components? Find bargains, and the latest technology like electric bikes, at the Rally in the trade show, cycle jumble and auction!
Go for a ride
Safe, short traffic-free rides for families head out from the Rally - plus longer rides for fitter cyclists. Most are led by experienced volunteers and all include plenty of stops for tea and cake!
Meet, eat and enjoy
At the Rally you can meet cycling friends old and new, enjoy the family atmosphere, watch live music, fill up with food and try the real ale bar. Don’t miss the talks and performances, club displays and amazing historic bikes, and if you can stay for the weekend there’s a campsite on site!
