by Holly Blades

Set your alarm early for Friday 3rd February when entries will open for the newest event from the Struggle.

Taking place on Sunday 9th July 2017 from Ampleforth, Struggle The Moors takes in 10,299ft over 109 miles. There will be a limit of only 500 places available so riders are urged to pre-register now via

Struggle The Moors sportive takes you over notorious Yorkshire Moors climbs such as the vertical walls that are Boltby Bank and Carlton Bank, the exposed Cote de Grosmont (as seen in the Tour de Yorkshire 2016), the aptly name Glaisdale Horror and finally the infamous Rosedale Chimney Bank with 90 miles in your legs.

"The Yorkshire Dales are your rolling hills, your picturesque landscapes and your quaint cafe stops. The Yorkshire Moors are steeper, bleaker, more exposed and fearfully isolated," says Struggle Events Director Matthew Mannakee.

To rub salt into the wounds, between your categorised climbs you'll find relentlessly undulating roads and some uncategorised stings in the tail.Pre-register now via
