Route description
Route description

**70 Miles
**
Completing this route will be an achievement for even the most seasoned rider. Also if you can’t quite face the thought of loads of climbing then this is the route for you. You ascend up sweeping roads with breathtaking crests.

With just under 5000ft of elevation and 11 category climbs you’ll certainly get to use your skills as you tackle this more technical route. Don’t worry though, you’ll have feed stations to keep you going should some of those climbs leave you flagging!

**52 Miles
**
Not opting for the hardest ride? You certainly won’t feel short changed when it comes to elevation and climbing.

Yes – the course has been designed so you’ll be able to take in most of the climbing of the longer route and feel the accomplishment of seeing more than 4000ft over 52miles once you’ve logged it on Strava. With 9 category climbs you’ll certainly deserve a few jelly beans.

35 Miles

Although only 35 miles long, this ride also climbs over 2400ft of climbing – so don’t think you're in for an easy ride. This great route is for the beginner looking to stretch their ability and push their boundaries.

The route takes in beautiful countryside that you’ll be able to take in at a slower pace than the other longer routes and look forward to some cheese and crackers.
