New venue! New route! Same name

The Igloo Sportive is back for a 3rd year with a new start venue and a completely new route providing a fresh road biking challenge in and around the Eastern Peak District.

The new 131km long route (with a total of 2666m of climb) goes clockwise from Chesterfield this time heading initially south towards Crich and then turning north towards Rowsley before heading off "trans-peak" in the direction of Sheffield via Chatsworth Park and the superb 20% climb over Curbar Gap - other notable climbs including the ascents of Dethick (Matlock), the tough 25% ascent of Sir William Hill (Grindleford) and the not to be missed Beeley Hillside on the final leg to the finish. The shorter 67km (but no less interesting!) route has 1380m of climb and is basically the southern loop of the longer ride.
