A list of cycling events taking place next year in Ryedale has now been updated. This includes a new Fadmoor sportive taking place on 16 June.
The next Ryedale Cycle Forum will be held on Tuesday 6th November at 11am at Ryedale House, Ryedale District Council. There will be an open drop in session from 10.30am to discuss any related matters prior to the beginning of the meeting.
Cycle England has launched a grant scheme to further enhance cycling facilities across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
The £100,000 grant fund will be used to help support businesses interested in improving facilities for cyclists, including cycle parking, storage, changing facilities, route signage and e-bike hire.
The grants provide local businesses with an opportunity to tap into Yorkshire’s thriving cycling market and improve their own facilities whilst contributing to the enhancement of the local infrastructure.
The new cycling holidays will focus on some of Yorkshire’s long-distance cycle routes, including the Way of the Roses, Yorkshire Dales Cycle Way and the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route.
Cycle England was one of a number of projects to receive funding from the UK Government’s £40 million Discover England Fund.
The cycling project aims to create new bookable cycling packages for Dutch and German leisure cyclists.
Packages will include accommodation, attractions, transport, bike hire and other elements which contribute to a cycling holiday.
The Discover England Fund is administered by VisitEngland and is a central government funded programme of activity, supported by match funding by partners in the public and private sectors.
Grant applications will be considered from individuals, businesses, charities and other organisations who wish to enhance cycling experiences across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
The grant scheme has three priority areas:
1. Increase e-bike hire availability and facilities
2. Improve cycling facilities and infrastructure
3. Enhance the signage on key cycling routes

New secure cycle parking facilities have been installed at Malton train station, in a partnership between TransPennine Express, North Yorkshire County Council and Ryedale District Council.
Providing an 25 per cent uplift compared to the previous facility, the new 48 space shelter offers cycle parking in a secure area covered by CCTV. The racks have been positioned on the main platform at Malton station with easy step free access provided.
The new cycle racks are designed to encourage customers of train services to cycle to the station rather than drive, helping to reduce road congestion in the Malton and Norton area.
