Rating: Rate this Event Now

Introduction:

Welcome to the 3rd edition of The Chris Walker Cycle Challenge and those of you who competed last year will be thrilled to bits to have the opportunity to do it all again. There will be 2 route option's available too you this year.

If you are feeling energetic there is an pleasant 43 mile loop with two serious climbs of Honister and Whinlatter and a few smaller ones in between (Route 43) or for the those wishing for a real challenge there is an mammoth 85 mile loop (Route 85) around the beautiful Lake District taking in most of the high mountain passes that the Lakes has to offer (long route). These include Honister, Hardknot, Wrynose and the hard way up Kirkstone pass from Ambleside known as 'The Struggle'.

Roll out time will be from 09.00am and will head out of the town of Keswick onto the first climb of the day of Honister pass.

The ride starts and finishes at Keswick Rugby Club,who have kindly offered the use of their facilities including toilets/car parking etc. Keswick Adventure Centre are for the third year on hand with helping with the organisation and providing broom wagon's. I am sure that you will all agree that the Challenge is not only a tough day of cycling, but you will be rewarded with some amazing views too.

All routes will be signed to aid navigation.
