You are certainly in for a treat, exploring one of the most scenic and low traffic areas in England. The routes will take you on a tour of Lancashire's most outstanding natural beauty spots. This includes the Forest of Bowland where you will pass through picturesque villages and farmland of the Ribble Valley, before climbing onto remote open moorland where you will be greeted with stunning views and a silence broken only by your exertions.

On the 160km route you will conquer many challenging climbs and descents which have featured in the Tour of Lancashire, the Tour of Britain and the National Road Race Championships. With renowned climbs such as Barley Fell, Waddington Fell, Nick o' Pendle, Trough of Bowland, and Longridge Fell forming the breathtaking backdrop to the challenging route. This ride has a heritage to match the riders who have raced on its roads in years gone by and who train on it to this day. Total ascent: 2,800m.

The shorter 100km route misses out the northern moorland loop around the Trough of Bowland but still includes Barley Fell, Waddington Fell, Longridge Fell and the Nick o' Pendle. A shorter challenge but you still get plenty of fantastic scenery and the chance to ride with Brad too. Total ascent: 1,754m.

For the first time this year, there will also be a 50km route for those who are not ready to take on the longer distances. This will take in much of the same route and has 720m of ascent.

There will be plenty of opportunities to refuel at a number of feed stations along the way. The route will be fully signed with Pennine Events extensive ride support operation including route signage, marshalling, support vehicles and mobile mechanics. You can truly enjoy the ride and scenery safely, alongside supporting the Bradley Wiggins Foundation.

Both routes will start and finish at Victory Park in Barnoldswick (Westclose Road, off Skipton Road (B 6252) BB18 5EN). There will be an event village featuring many of the event partners along with entertainment and displays.
