Tour De Yorkshire 2017

The Tour De Yorkshire will be speeding through Yorkshire from 28-30 April and MCF is all geared up to celebrate the occasion.

We are delighted to have a team of 15 cyclists taking part in the official Maserati Yorkshire Sportive on Sunday 30 April, starting and finishing at Fox Valley, Sheffield.

Our Team MCF cyclists will be completing challenging, hilly routes of either 50, 75 or 100km to raise funds for the Margaret Carey Foundation. If you would like to support any of them, here are a few of the cyclists with links to their sponsorship pages

They have all trained hard for the event and any additional sponsorship raised will give them the boost they need to get them over the finish line.

Tour De Yorkshire Vintage Bike Display

Day 3 of the Tour De Yorkshire sets of from the centre of Bradford in City Park. MCF have provided refurbished bikes for a vintage display in the former Forsters Bistro, a fantastic venue within City Park. This display will form part of an exhibition celebrating the history of cycling which takes place during the Tour De Yorkshire.

Students from the nearby Forsters college will be researching the history of the vintage bikes and making a display with help from local artist Tim Curtis.

The Maserati Tour de Yorkshire Ride offers a unique mix of Tour de France delivery combined with Yorkshire hospitality and beauty resulting in a sportive dream day.

Taking place on the 3rd and final day of the Tour de Yorkshire (Sunday 30th April), this is your chance to ride many of the same roads as the pros before they do, including the pro finish line, complete with support from the waiting crowds.

With three routes available (long route 100km, medium route 75 km and short route 45km) this once in a lifetime experience really isn’t to be missed for any biking enthusiasts out there.

To enter all we ask is that all cyclists to pledge to raise a minumum of £150 in sponsorship for MCF. All TEam MCF cyclists will receive a cycling jersey to wear during the event.

The money raised by the cyclists in this event will help fund a new MCF van. With over 200,000 miles on the clock our current van is coming to the end of it’s working life and urgently needs to be replaced. Reliable transport is important for all organisations but for MCF it is simply crucial: being able to upply prison sites is fundamental to our day to day operations, as is getting refurbished bikes from the prison down to community projects for bike sales or donations.

The Tour De Yorkshire is a popular event and is sure to sell out quickly, if you would like to join Team MCF be a part of this unique cycling opportunity then please get in touch today!
