Short but tough
Tackle the famous hill climbs in the Matlock/Derwent Valley area.

Matlock and the surrounding area is steeped with road biking hill climb history: Bank Road, Riber Road and Rowsley Bar to name just three of the well known infamous ascents. The Matlock Top 10 celebrates the richness of the areas steep, 20% plus gradient hill climbs by creating a route that ascends 10 of them in just 61.5 km/38.2 miles. Thats 1736 m of ascent or 5696 ft in old money.

For those looking for a slightly less extreme challenge then the Matlock Top 4 is for you 32.7 km/20.3 miles based around the same route as the Top 10 but climbing just 4 of the 10 climbs.

Leaving Cannock Chase on tree lines roads we soon head out into the countryside, riding over Blithfield Reservoir and on to the steepest climb of the day, Buttermilk Hill (a modest 13%). We take you through the pretty village of Tixal, full of wonderful architecture to keep your eyes occupied as well as your legs.

A generous supply of High5 energy products and cake should keep you going before a final climb into the Chase and back to base.

The Wiggle Forest Ranger Sportive offers beautiful, undulating English countryside on a ride that will take you through the best and most scenic parts of East Staffordshire and Leicestershire counties, also encapsulating the most enticing cycling roads around The National Forest.

Starting from Uttoxeter Racecourse, the course heads south, circumnavigating Blithfield Reservoir to Abbots Bromley, where the route moves west to enter the National Forest at Newborough.

Working the way west to Barton-under-Needwood, Short riders head north and split at this point, while Standard and Epic riders bear south, winding the way through the quiet and tranquil country lanes that last until the outskirts of Twycross are reached.

Next, its onto Measham for the second split of the day. Standard riders will go out eastwards while Epic riders go south for a loop that takes in the sleepy towns of Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Moira among others, before rejoining the rest of the course at Netherseal.

From here the course heads back east and into Barton-under-Needwood once again, where the sportive ventures north through the Needwood Forest, finally leaving the National Forest at Marchington for the final leg back to ride HQ, where a finishers medal and t-shirt wait for you on crossing the line.
