Very challenging course with quite a few hills. But unfortunately when we got to the finish we just wanted a cup of tea and it had all been packed away.… read more

A lumpy course with sharp, muscle burning climbs that will really test your legs. Very well signposted, even without the GPX file running on your GPS, you will find your way around with ease. Great organisation, superb facilities at Thornbridge Brewery itself including an on hand bike mechanic for them last minute bike tweaks, and a great bunch of friendly organisers. Looking forward to booking up for next year.</p><p>Do it folks!… read more

Route description
Route description

This sportive through stunning countryside takes riders across the Dove and into the Staffordshire Peak District taking in the medieval market town of Longnor.

From here riders will be taken through the Manifold Valley, enjoying picturesque views as you journey back via the village of Hartington and the strangely named ‘Custard Fields’ as you experience the ‘hidden’ Peak District.

The course is split into two route options. The Fun Ride or Half Pint, which is 30 miles with 796m of elevation and the Challenge Ride or Full Pint which is 50 miles with an elevation of 1,424m.

Really well organised and good communication near the date so was easy to access the information on the day. Some loos near the car park would have been really helpful - to help you get organised before you got on your bike. Apart from that everything was great and lovely homemade granola and sandwiches on route. Thank you team!
