Places Still Available for The Green Jersey SportCross Event on Sunday 2nd February

by Nick Gregory

Fancy taking on something new this weekend? The Green Jersey in Clitheroe are holding an event with a difference. It may be only 30 miles but don't be fooled, this is a tough event.

Featuring 3,000 ft of climb, mud, rocks, gravel and tarmac the scenic route takes you from The Green Jersey's shop in Clitheroe to the trail centre at Gisburn Forest and back.

Much of the route is in the Trough of Bowland, an area of outstanding natural beauty, blended with the stunning back roads of the southern areas of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. With a mix of muddy bridleways - some sections are unrideable as the route crosses the Bowland Fells - the route then takes in a loop of the southern part of the red route of Gisburn Trail Centre. 

There's a feed station, marshals and mountain rescue in attendance - everything you could want for a great day out. Back at base there will be a bike expo, bike wash, hot food and beer! Along with live coverage of the World Cyclo Cross Championships from Holland.
