Welcome to the York Rally

Many thanks to all who took part in the 2018 York Rally! We’re delighted to have run another safe and enjoyable event. Some first images and video are now online here.

Planning for 2019 has already started, and please bear with us while we update this website for the 2019 event. The provisional dates for the York Rally 2019 weekend are 22-23 June 2019, but we can’t confirm that completely until the horse racing calendar is finalised. Please watch this site, or our Facebook and Twitter accounts, for updates!


The York Rally is a friendly family cycling event on York’s Knavesmire which has been held almost every year since 1945. Whether you cycle already or not, please do come along, bring the family and have a go! Entry, parking and almost all activities are free!

The York Rally is also famous as the UK’s historic gathering for cycle tourers, grass-roots racers and vintage cycle experts – and many more enthusiastic and friendly people who just love cycling and are happy to share their passion.

There’s camping on site for the many visitors who stay for the whole weekend – book early for the lowest prices! And since our new all-volunteer team revived the Rally in 2015, many Rally-goers have joined our supporters’ club, the Friends of York Rally or donated via JustGiving.

We look forward to seeing you there in June!
