It is with great sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of this year’s CVMBC event. Under the current circumstances it would be irresponsible to attempt to carry on whilst hoping for a quick resolution to all the social disruption being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We also feel that trying to reschedule for later in the year would be unfair and counterproductive to the many events that are already in place for the Autumn period, as well as those events that have already been rescheduled into an already crowded calendar at short notice too.
Rest assured that all those that have already entered will be refunded shortly through their PayPal accounts.
Best wishes to all our supporters, please stay healthy and we hope to see you back again in 2021.

About The Event
Since the event’s first edition in 2004 we have striven to adapt our route to try and incorporate as much legal off-road riding as we possibly can. Over the intervening years our commitment has paid off handsomely as we have continued to develop the route and have secured access to several additional sections. These sections provide some added variety for our returning participants and complement the rest of the route nicely. As a bonus, one of the original, evil tarmac climbs has bitten the dust!
The 30 mile route is a mixture of demanding off road terrain, local roads and lanes, set around the picturesque, post-industrial countryside of the Colne Valley in Huddersfield.
The course travels through the heart of the “Last of the Summer Wine” and “Where the Heart Is” country. The event is open to anyone aged 12 or over, however under 16’s must be supervised at all times by a responsible adult. Riders of all abilities are welcomed, but are reminded that although this is primarily a fun event, the course is challenging.
This is a fundraising event in support of the 39th Parkwood Scout Group and Leymoor Cricket Club, Golcar.
