Event description

Description

A fully self supported gravel event around Huddersfield. Using tracks and quiet lanes, the route has roughly 6000ft of climbing, 65 miles in length and is a real test.

There are no feed zones, no sign posts, you are on your own. There is a GPS track for all riders which will be sent out before the start.

The route uses high, exposed moorland, valley bottoms and everything inbetween. Suitable for gravel bikes and hardtail MTB's. The route is roughly 50/50 road/offroad


Free tea/instant coffee at start and finish, plus a free pasta dish at the finish.

Minimum donation is £10

All monies raised goes to Happydays ministries, a homeless charity based in Halifax. Below is a short description of what they do.


Hope for the homeless through community and social enterprise

Happy Days promotes supported community living and social enterprise. Our key aim is to support the homeless and vulnerable (those with less chances in life) to live in safe and welcoming communities and together provide opportunities such as work experience, volunteering and support to help us prosper as a community.


Why the community needs us

We offer safe and supported accommodation within a community setting, and run two social enterprise schemes (Happydays Cycles & Happydays Cafe) which raise funds for our work and offer volunteering opportunities to our residents. Our aim is to model what we do else where and develop partnerships to create more housing schemes which will help us to reduce homelessness.


Our impact on the community

We currently support 11 men with supported accommodation in our local area. Over the last 12 months we have developed partnerships with other projects in South Shields, Dewsbury and Bradford which will offer another between 10 - 16 rooms to folk that find themselves homeless or at risk.
