Ride Details

Not Quite the Hell of the North the Scotton is a 100K challenge ride with a difference. Approximately one third of the route is on non tarmac bridleways, farm roads and `whites` all able to be ridden on both road and mountain bikes. A good level of fitness is required. The start and finish is at Staveley village hall, a few miles north of Knaresborough. 

Entry is £19.00 including certificate, mug & food at the finish.

All proceeds go to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. 

2016 Results 

Looking at the tired, muddy faces at the finish, I think we can say that this gentle ride in the countryside was a bit of a challenge. As you all know this is not a charity event, as such, but with Cycleworks providing the goodies, your donations on the day and all the helpers giving their time we will be sending £1732.85 to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

A big thankyou to the helpers, without these people the event would not happen...

Arrowing- Allan

Food- Dorothy and Helen

Thanks to riders and helpers for making it almost a stress free day.




What is the Scotton 100? – First it’s not a race. It’s definitely a challenge and the idea is to get round in your own time but preferably before all your friends! 

The route – Roughly circular you are never more than 10 mls from the finish. 

What’s the off road like? – Depends on the weather but there is no deep mud, it can all be ridden on normal tyres but the sandy section can difficult if it’s very dry! 

Which bike? – Well that’s the point, it’s a compromise, the lighter the wheels and tyres the more care needed on the rough but you have the advantage on the road. 

How do I find the way? – Follow someone else at your own peril. You get a detailed route description, a map and the entrances to the off road sections are arrowed. 

At the finish – village hall, changing, toilets (sorry no showers) and sit down food.
