2019 Will see the final Hamsterley Beast

Five years in and its been a heck of a ride! Established in 2015 by a group of local Mountain Bikers, the Hamsterley Beast has raised close to £100,000  for the Great North Air Ambulance Service.

Come and join us for the final event across the weekend of 11/12th May and help us go out with a bang.

On Saturday night we have our farewell party with live music, a licensed bar, food and camping.
On Sunday we have the ride, a truly beastly 40 mile challenge guaranteed to test the limits of your legs!

The less brave can take part in the ever popular Half Beast, its half the distance but still has a vicious bite. For the kids we have a 10 mile Mini Beast

 If you are new to the Beast , we are a mountain biking weekender event set in and around one of the country's best trail centres, Hamsterley Forest. The event is non profit with money raised going to support the Great North Air Ambulance Service.
This year's ride comes in three options:
      10 mile Mini Beast
      20 mile Half Beast
      40 mile Full Beast

The Beast is a challenge ride and it is difficult but there are no technical features that cannot be rolled or avoided. Riders of all ability are welcome to come along and have a go, there is a great atmosphere and you are surrounded by friends.

Camping is also highly recommended for the chilled vibe. The awesome Friday Street return to headline Saturday's evening of live music  and food. It's not relentless so you still get lots of opportunity to  socialise with fellow riders. Great friendships have been made in them thar fields! This year we have more food options, licensed bars and even more music with amazing "glamping" options for the divas amongst you. Its not one to miss.
