The weather today (Sunday) would be a real test of your True Grit so if you’ve been out riding today then it’d be worth rewarding yourself. In fact any ride deserves a little reward: pizza, chocolate, beer.

We’ve been thinking about this and reckon that riding Yorkshire True Grit would create a bit of a thirst so we approached the team at Wainwright Beer as we noticed they were running a “Find Your Mountain” campaign. What bigger metaphorical mountain is there than Yorkshire True Grit?

So, as you cross the finish line at Yorkshire True Grit you’ll be directed to the signing out tent (as per last year) and then be awarded a half pint of Wainwright’s Golden Beer (*subject to stock). Wainwright’s campaign talks about personal challenges coming in all shapes and sizes – pushing yourself out of that warm and cosy comfort zone. We’re all for a bit of that – Yorkshire True Grit is your personal challenge and it’ll take you well out of your comfort zone to find your true grit. Wainwright’s say that their Golden Beer is the perfectly refreshing reward for those who think they’ve earned it. Well, whether you’ve cycled The Stampede, The Drive or The Outlaw we’re pretty damn sure you’ll have earned it! 

We all know that eating the right stuff the night before a big ride can make all the difference to how you feel whilst you’re on the trails. Trying to cook a really good meal on a camping stove is possible (though I can never manage it), but can add to pre-event nerves. Something we all want to avoid. 

Cue Mediterranean Luxury Foods – a great company based in Easingwold who sell a fantastic range of, well, mediterranean luxury foods; pasta, pasta sauces, olive oils, balsamic vinegars (well worth a try!) and so on. 

The guys at Mediterranean Luxury Foods enjoy getting out on the trails too, so thought that feeding the Friday night campers in preparation for the Saturday rides would be a great thing to do. They’re not chefs though, so in reality they’re stumping up the ingredients and Ginni and her team at High Paradise Farm are going to transform them into an amazing meal for you! All free if you are camping* on Friday! (subject to availability…we’re guessing there’ll be about 150 of you wanting food!)

Yes, I really did just say that: it’s a free pasta party on Friday if you’re camping at High Paradise! 

*If you’ve booked one of the cottages or b&b rooms at High Paradise then you’ll also get free pasta.
