As many of you are aware Mike Corley (YRCC club secretary) is participating in stage 2 of Cycle GB 2016 – a 600 mile charity bike ride in aid of Benenden Charitable Trust and the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH). Mike will be riding 300 miles from York to Kent.
Mike is an integral part of the club committee and regularly posts weekly routes and club correspondence through the relevant channels. To thank Mike for his continued support in the running of YRCC, the committee has decided to use some of the clubs funds to sponsor Mike on his charity ride.
If you wish to sponsor Mike you can do this via his just giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Mike-Corley-cycleGB-YorktoKent
Good luck Mike from all at YRCC!

York Rouleurs Cycling Club Fish ‘n’ Chip Ride 2016
Come and join us for the 2016 Bridlington Fish ‘n’ Chip run on Saturday 4th June 2016!
2015 saw the birth of a classic club tradition in the making – a trip to the seaside for fish and chips on the front. Come and join us for a summer day’s riding through some of East Yorkshire’s best scenery on one of the longest days of year.
Reprising last year’s route we start at Constantine’s statue at the Minster at 7.30am and head for the picturesque road which rises through Millington Dale and Thixendale, along to our founder’s namesake village Butterwick. There, after suitably reverential social media opportunities, we swing northwards close by Wharram Percy, the deserted medieval village on the western edge of the chalk Wolds then east towards Flamborough and its famous lighthouses on the headland with its sheer white cliffs. After that it is a gleeful descent into Bridlington and the siren call of a well-earned lunch on the sea front.
The return leg takes us past the magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Burton Agnes, down through Watton where William de Malton, the 13th century master-mason who built Beverley Minster is buried, and as quickly as we can manage through the unremarkable Middleton on the Wolds before refuelling in Pocklington. Then it’s onwards onto familiar roads to be back in York in time for tea.
At 114 miles (184 km) and 3,000ft climbing it is a cracking day out at the very start of summer. Come and join us.

Established in 2014, York Rouleurs Cycling Club is a friendly British Cycling-affiliated club aimed at encouraging group cycling for those based in and around York, North Yorkshire.
Initially conceived as an alternative to riding alone, we provide individuals with a time and place to meet, and the added security of the company of experienced group cyclists. Our weekly rides regularly attract up to 16 riders, all passionate about road cycling and with varying experience and ability.
Due to growing popularity and member base we have outgrown our old website and decided it was time for something new!
We also have an active social media presence, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and our website Forum, which acts as our virtual clubhouse and allows our members to help shape our club. Cycling is a great way to meet new people and we arrange regular social activities around our cycling events!
