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.
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.
