Hard to believe it’s almost on us for another year… The Paria X North Brewing Co Paperboy ride 2021 is happening on Saturday 7th August 2021.

There are more riders this year than ever, and still time to sign up.

So, essential event info…

Event address:


(Please don’t go to the North Brewing Co tap on Sovereign Street in the city centre, or the Sheepscar brewery site where we met in previous years – Springwell is a shiny new venue!)


Please arrive at Springwell at 8:30am for a staggered 9am / 9:15am start.


Road route

Gravel route

Strava is saying the route takes around 4 hrs 30, but people have smashed it a lot quicker, and also taken longer, so it’s down to you and how you feel on the day – no pressure!


Everyone gets a complimentary pint upon returning to Springwell-

Tables outside the brewery will be reserved for riders

As always, you’ll also get a Paperboy goodie bag full of surprises

Legendary street food vendors Little Bao Boy and Kerbside Kids will be selling food

Dj Ed Vector will be spinning tunes


At Springwell we will have:

Storage for riders’ belongings

Bike racks for when you return, but please bring your own lock (it’s a fairly secure site, but you know what these things are like…)

[Both the above are left at riders discretion/risk]


Springwell will be used for bike racks on the day. There is on street parking in the local area, and the nearest secure paid parking is either Woodhouse Lane or Trafalgar Street. Both are ride-able from Springwell, with Trafalgar Street having a cycle path all the way (£6 all day).

And finally – we want you reppin… so for every rider who wears Paria kit (jersey and bibs here people not caps, you can deliver FULL GAS!) on the day – you will get a free pair of Limited Edition socks. We will have the new Springwell North brewing Co jersey available to buy in the day if you are stuck!
