About us

We are a group of independent volunteers currently working to revive the York Rally after its temporary demise in 2013. We are not supported by or affiliated to any national cycling organisation.

For more details of the committee, governance and for the dates and location of our next meeting (at which all are welcome) please see the York Rally Committee page. To get in touch, see the Contact Us page.

If you would like to support the revival please do consider becoming a ‘Friend of York Rally‘ and/or making a campsite pitch booking.

  1. I would suggest contact with other cycling organisations such as VCC, Tricycle Association, Bygone Bikes,Spokes EK and Scotland etc etc, to promote the Rally , What about the big trade names ? and sponsorship, a personality to open (chris Boardman ?) .

    1. We’ve contacted all of those I’m pretty sure and many more – I press released just about every cycling organisation I could think of a little while ago – although more chasing and following up would definitely be good. Paul Reid has done quite a bit of the liaison so far – we’re expecting to be able to invite all of the various clubs, associations etc. to exhibit for free, the benefit being that they’ll bring their members.

      Dealing with the trade is one of the major things we need a new volunteer for – we are hoping to get someone to come forward at the next meeting. So far the rest of us have put the word out to some of the obvious potential exhibitors to keep the date free but there’s much more needs doing on the trade side – everything from setting prices to producing exhibitor packs to taking bookings.

      And we are definitely open to offers re sponsorship and/or celebrities!

      We’re hoping to attract quite a few new people to the next meeting (13th Sept) and to get more ‘fresh blood’ on board as committee members to help push things forward. You and indeed anyone else reading this would be most welcome, even if it’s just to throw in ideas :-).

  2. I do think York is a really lovely city and one that I like to visit whenever possible and it really is good news that the York Rally is back on for 2015. It’s already marked on our calendar. Would have liked to have seen an Audax ride or two though! Even though there is already a sportive. Hope to see you all there next June.
