We've gone bigger & better than last year to provide a bumper ride and goodie bag. Expect some climbs, fun descents and approx 45 miles in the leg. Good vibes? We've teamed up with fellow cycling pals at Paria, Darkwoods Coffee, Restrap , Hope Tech, Quoc, Cycle Works Yorkshire, Reyt Good, CV Graphics to make sure our taproom is full of them and you're suitably kitted out MGE style.

Good causes? All ticket funds will be heading their way to the wonderful The Welcome Centre too. Good vibes, good causes... what more are you after?

We spoke to Rich Norgate (Magic Rock Head of Design, cycling guru and organiser in chief) to find out a little bit more about the event...

What is Magic Gravel Escape?

RN: "Well simply put it’s a one day ride not race over the gravel paths, wooded single track and quiet lanes of our home town Huddersfield. The aim is to raise money for the Welcome Centre, a vital food bank in Huddersfield. All the proceed for the event will go towards supporting our local community at this challenging time. The aim is to have some good fun whilst raising some much needed funds.

The event isn’t like a big sportive, there will be be no sign posts, no mid-ride table full of banana halves and flapjack, but their will be some super goodies at the end courtesy of our good friends and fellow supporters. Also some whispers of a few beers and a few B2B DJ sets on the wheels post ride, but we shall see... If it's anything like last year, we should be in for a really good day!"

How Long is the Route?

RN: "The route is roughly 45 miles, we're still fine tuning it, taking in the vibe from last year and squeezing the best bits our area has to offer. Whilst it's going over some some pretty rough terrain, it’ll be a sublime way to enjoy nature and get off the beaten track. We’ll point out a few nice cafe stops on route. We’d rather you enjoy the route and take it in, but if you want to ride fast that’s also cool. It’s more about bringing people together and enjoying the ride."

Where do we sign up?

RN: "After last years success, we've decided to upon the ride up to more people in order to raise even more funds for The Welcome Centre. We were overwhelmed with the level of support last time around, to sell out within a week was beyond our wildest expecatations.

Sign ups have been ongoing for a few weeks now and it's looking close to selling out once again. Grab your hands on the final tickets".
