Route information
Our route starts in Buxton and after a cheeky climb out of town, we are soon onto some glorious gravel within 3km. As we head south we take parts of the High Peak for a fast & flat 10km off road section before things get lumpier as we head west & then north back up to Macclesfield Forest. Most of the climbing is on tarmac.
The back end of the course is spectacular with woodland sections in Macclesfield Forest, some amazing views & the finish taking in parts of the classic Cat & Fiddle climb before turning off-road back to Buxton for a beer & food at the rider village.
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.
