Long Route:8:00am |
Starting in the heart of the Peak District in Hope, riders will first take on Winnats Pass. You will then head West towards Whaley Bridge and south along the picturesque River Goyt with a long 5k climb.
After a lumpy section to Bakewell, the last 55k features 2 big climbs. You will finish with a loop around Mam Tor, followed by a fast descent back into Hope.
Starting from Hope, you will tackle your first climb within the first 3k - Winnats Pass (1.5km at 12%). You then head South West along the Goyt Valley for a long, gentle 5k climb.
It is mostly downhill and rolling to Bakewell before one last climb of Longstone Edge and a fast descent home for a well earned medal.
