Event Details

Join us this May and take on the The Prince of Wales Hospice's longest running fundraising event!

With three exciting routes to choose from (30, 60 and 100 miles*)  and also a family ride route there's a challenge for everyone!

*Please note the route distances could alter in length due to road works/closures closer to the event date, this is to ensure you all take part on the safest routes possible.

Each route will begin and end at our event hub in Pontefract Park with the cycle itself beginning at 9am.

This year’s event will also include:
  • Chip timing*
  • Feed stations with refreshments and toilets along each of the routes
  • Medical support

Cyclothon participant, Julie Tuke, who cycled the 60 mile route in 2019, said:

'This is the 17th year I've done the Cyclothon and it was lovely to see so many people turn out to raise money for such a great cause. It was a beautiful day, with a fantastic atmopshere and a great scenic route; we even saw a baby deer in the fields!'
