The Black Sheep Big Spoon Bike Ride ( BSBSBR ) is about to open for entries for 2019. Here at Classic Days, we love this ride. The friendliest sportive in the world in our view !

BSBSBR 9 June 2019
More details available at British cycling at https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/192352/Black-Sheep-Big-Spoon-Bike-Ride-2019 . There are two routes. The normal route offering a fair challenge to those of us who are weekend café cyclists. The longer Big Spoon Bike Ride is a proper monster taking you out of Wensleydale into Swaledale and then back over the Buttertubs. You will need serious miles in your legs to take that on.
All the riders enjoy great feed stations along the route. Best of all, Black Sheep provide a hot meal and rejuvenating pint at the finish in Masham.
Big Spoon Bike Ride and Wooden Spoon
The ride supports Wooden Spoon, the children’s charity of rugby. The Black Sheep Big Spoon Bike Ride entry fee has a small donation in it. There is a chance to top that up on the entry form. Riders can also add sponsorship if they really want to do something serious to support disadvantaged children.
