Exciting news for the York Cycle Rally 2024!

We’re bringing three fantastic, volunteer-organised events together on the Knavesmire in June 2024: the York Rally, the Retro Bike Show and the National Clarion Cycling Club Summer Meeting.

Together, they’ll make up a grand – and still 100% volunteer-organised – York Cycle Festival on the 21-23 June. Huge thanks to the volunteers with RetroBike and the NCCC who have helped make this possible, alongside our own York Rally team!

It’ll have all of the elements of the York Rally we know and love – but with more people, more traders, more rides, more going on, and with a new energy to keep the event sustainable into the future. Entry, parking, rides and just about all activities on site will remain proudly free of charge.

Even better: grasstrack racing returns in 2024 to the historic York Rally arena, organised by the National Clarion CC!

As previously mentioned, campsite bookings are already open, and the lowest “super-earlybird” prices are available only until the end of December. So please book your pitch now!

We’ll keep this update short – our all-volunteer team are busy working through the details of bringing the new events and attractions together in June. We’ll have more news on all aspects ASAP – and we’ll also be bringing the website up to date.

But watch this space – we’ll have even more good news shortly – including details of a new super-attractive offer for traders!

We can’t wait to see everyone in June, for what may just be the best Rally yet!

Belated Merry Christmas from the all-volunteer York Rally organising team, and we wish everyone a Happy New Year and tailwinds in 2024!

Amid the festivities we’ve been busy on the organising team, and the 2024 York Rally is really shaping up to be exceptional:

- The inaugural York Cycle Festival is coming together superbly - we're working with the Retro Bike Show and National Clarion Cycling Club to bring new people, activites and energy to the event!

- Grasstrack racing will be back, thanks to the NCCC!

- We're also boosting the rides programme - the Retro Ride returns to the Rally in 2024, as does an offical 100k Audax run...

- This year we are taking the dramatic move of making it COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE for cycle industry companies to exhibit at the event! Let's grow the trade show!

- For those who do not wish to trade all weekend, Saddlebag Sale table bookings are open now too!

See here for all the details: https://yorkrally.org/2023/12/29/york-r ... as-update/


We’re working hard to make this next York Rally – and Festival – the best yet! Our next planning meeting is coming up on the 27th January, 10:30am at St Chad’s Church Hall, Campleshon Road, York – there’ll also be a Zoom option. As ever, all are very welcome to attend.

Finally, another reminder that the cheapest rates for campsite pitches must end in just a few days – please do book by midnight on 31st December to get the very best super-earlybird prices: https://yorkrally.org/visitor-informati ... -bookings/
