Tour de Y

23 September 2015 - 26 September 2015

Tour de Y 1844 Challenge: 

Tour de Y is  a national fundraising event designed to encourage local people to get active, whilst at the same time raising funds for local YMCAs and YMCA projects.

The challenge will generate money to support young people in crisis at the YMCA in Norfolk and England. Here at YMCA Norfolk, we’re encouraging people to sign up and get sponsored to take part in the ride and do something brilliant for your local community.

With three challenging and exciting routes to choose from the Tour de Y is for cycling enthusiasts wanting to push themselves beyond the typical single day event.

All three routes will take in stunning areas of our country before converging on London to enjoy a celebration in one of the world’s most famous capital cities. The three different routes are all around 360 miles long and will take 4 days to complete.

The start venues will be:

  • YMCA Lakeside – a stunning venue on the shores of Windermere in the Lake District national park
  • Angel of the North – one of the most recognisable pieces of public art in the country and sited in the beautiful county of Tyne and Wear
  • YMCA Cornwall – we will begin from Penzance, almost as far south west as you can go and a traditional start venue for long distance bikes rides

Along the way we will take in areas of the country renowned for their scenic beauty including Dartmoor, North Dorset Downs, the New Forest, Lincolnshire Wolds, Cambridgeshire Fens and the Cotswolds.

There are only have 60 places available and they are offered on a first come first served basis.
