    The UKCE Fell Beast Sportive has been tailored to be the most spectacular course we have ever designed.

    With almost 7,000ft of Cumbrian climbing to tackle over the Epic route, the Beast will test you on some tough climbs yet reward you with a series of scintillating descents mixed with gentle drops that allow you to take in some of the most impressive views in the country.

    Heading out from Carlisle Racecourse, the route heads south immediately and to our first climb of the day to the top of Warnell Fell. Shortly after the climb you are rewarded with the first panoramic views of the day, looking out over the Lake District National Park. Here, the Short route continues south to Caldbeck, while Standard and Epic riders bear west to Aspatria before bearing south again towards the National Park.

    After crossing the River Derwent, we reach Bassenthwaite Lake at which the course splits for the final time as Standard riders move east and Epic riders continue south for a big reward.

    The first of which is Lorton Vale, with grand fells and crags to your left and views over Crummock Water to your right. After passing Buttermere Lake, we reach our goal for the ride Honister Pass with crags looming either side of the road. A tough climb to the top ensues while the peaks of the slate mine area offer views out over the Borrowdale Fells.

    We now descend in to Borrowdale and skirt the edge of Derwent Water before cutting through Keswick to rejoin the Standard loop at the top of Bassenthwaite Lake. From here we rejoin the Short route and hug the edge of the National Park before heading north to the finish line, where a finishers medal and t-shirt wait for you.

    The original and the best. Lakeland Monster Miles is the toughest both physically and technically of all the events, offering a full take of the best of Lakeland riding, and is a great way to end your Cyclocross season.

    Lakeland riding throws some unique challenges at riders and it's not just the rocks and mud that make it interesting. Steep gradients and relentless climbing with a bit of typical Lakeland weather thrown in makes the Monster Miles a tough but satisfying day out.

    The route starts from Fitz Park in Keswick allegedly the wettest town in England on a tree covered disused railway line, the first off-road sector is a great warm up with a rock filled river below and occasional glimpses of distant hills- a taste of the spectacular views to come.

    If you are lucky with the weather, bursts of golden light will be filtering through the trees as the valley starts to take on the colours of Autumn. Once off the old railway you are onto quiet lanes with barely any traffic as you climb up into the hills.

    Both the Massif and Mini-Massif follow the same route until the cut off shortly after Cockermouth, with the Mini Massif missing out a section around Loweswater, and the final and highest climb of the day in Whinlatter Forest. The climb through Whinlatter is a long slog up the forest roads, and though your lungs will be burning, it is soon forgotten once you start dropping away down the trails, losing all the hard won height on a glorious descent.
