Route information
Long Route
Distance: 79km
Elevation: 1200m
Percentage of Route Off Road: 50%
The route starts in the heart of Cannock Chase for an action packed first 25km on the gravel. Riding through the woods, the trails are quick and smooth on rolling terrain including a couple of punchy climbs.
Out of the woods you will head north to historic Stafford and ride around the outskirts of town before hitting the old railway line that now makes up the Stafford to Newport Greenway. The final 25km is quick before a final off road climb as we come back into Cannock Chase for a well earned beer & some food.
Medium Route
Distance: 53km
Elevation: 800m
Percentage of Route Off Road: 60%
The medium route follows the long route but chopping off the very top and bottom of the course including a pretty lumpy 20km section making this a considerably easier option than the long route.
There will be first aiders and mechanics at all the feed stops on hand if there are any accidents. There will also be ride captains along the route to support the riders.
