3 Weekend Cycling Events: Escape New York 2014, BHF Glastonbury Bike Ride and Big Leeds Bike Ride

15th September 2014

This weekend is a mammoth one in the cycling calendar, with three big events coming up – two of which are being held in the UK!

On the weekend of September 19 – 22, we will witness three fantastic cycling events being held, which is why we thought it is only right to take you through which events are happening when, where and why.

Escape New York 2014
When: Saturday 20, September 2014
Where: New York, USA
Who: For devoted and casual cyclists, of varied capability levels.
Event: The 20th Annual Escape New York offers a food-filled and fun-filled day – thanks to the New York Cycle Club – with picturesque views of the city, including the Hudson River. Four classic autumn routes across NYC for cyclists of varying levels – 100, 65, 50 and 20 miles – plus new this year, an escorted ride option for 25 milers, led by experienced New York Cycle Club ride leaders. Don’t forget the Finish Line Festival, including music, raffle and more delicious treats.

The Big Leeds Bike Ride at Roundhay Park
When: Sunday, 21 September 2014
Where: Leeds
Who: For those who support Leeds Children’s hospital – cyclists of various levels.
Event: Described as a “challenging” ride from Leeds to York, the 100 miles route travels quiet country roads, heading north to the Howardian Hills and back. A shorter – 50 miles – journey returns to Leeds. Both finish with refreshments, music and rest!
