Community Ride


You too can experience the thrill of the circuit by taking part in the Barnsley Community Ride. 


A dedicated ride aimed at families (children must be aged 8 upwards) held before the start of the races.


The Community Ride provides a fantastic opportunity for you and your family to ride and experience the circuit first hand for up to one hour before the races start. 


The best part... it's free !!

Signing On

There is no need to pre-book, just turn up.   The ride usually starts about 4pm, but please check local media / our facebook page for exact timings.

You'll need to sign-on at the dedicated Community Ride Sign-On area located next to the Town Hall, near the Start / Finish Line.

A quote

"Thank you to your members who encouraged, supported and pushed on the 5th climb, my little girl on her cycle around the road racing track on Friday.  She could hardly ride her bike before and now I can't get her off it.  She is looking forward to the next time she can join in.  She is very proud of her medal."
