Yorkshire True Grit Dark Skies 2020
Entries Are Open for Yorkshire True Grit Dark Skies Now in its third year, Yorkshire True Grit Dark Skies is firmly positioned on the event calendar. 50 miles through Yorkshire True Grit country, taking on North Yorkshire Forest, Vale, Moor and Trail – at night. Limited again to just 100 riders, this event forms part of the North York Moors Dark Skies Festival. In 2020 there will be barely be any moon (just 3% moon) which should mean the sky is illuminated with stars…and bike lights! The event starts at the stunning Newburgh Priory on the edge of the village of Coxwold in the Howardian Hills, as the sun goes down, and heads into the Howardian Hills and traverses below the White Horse at Kilburn, before heading toward Boltby where the climb to the very edge of the exposed North York Moors begins.
