Sat 3rd Sep 2022
In true Peak District fashion, there are plenty of both short and sharp, and long-enduring climbs on all the routes. But don’t be discouraged, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views at the top and long winding descents on the way down. With three routes available you can choose the distance that suits you best, and it will be a day full of stunning views and scenery whichever you choose.
On the Long Route, you'll hit the high point at Whetstone Ridge, but with other climbs including Mam Tor, Gun and Sir William's Hill along the way you'll feel all 2613m of ascent in your legs by the end.
Whilst this will certainly be a challenge you won’t want to miss out on the chance to ride this event through the Peak District, which in the middle of Summer is set to be a glorious day of riding.
After a tough but stunning day out on the road, you will be well rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line. Everyone will of course receive their finisher's medal, but also you will receive beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from other event partners.
So sign up for a wonderful, professionally run cycling experience with a friendly atmosphere.
