The challenge is to have a go at riding the route you have chosen to do in the time allowed* - there is a choice of distances either 130km (approx 2400m climb) or 65km (approx 1350m climb). SPORTident timing will be used and you will need to "punch" at control points on your ride to register that you have completed the fixed route in full. You will be provided with a basic OS colour copy route
map plus the entire route will be arrowed and there will be marshalled checkpoints en-route with fruit, biscuits, energy gels, juice & water. *There will time cut off points on each route after which you will not be allowed to continue - these cut off times will be detailed in advance on our website plus on the route maps handed out on the day. The cut off times and overall course time limits will be challenging but certainly not impossible!! We have avoided busy main roads wherever possible and have gone for quieter (and
wherever possible smooth) country roads the majority of which will showcase some of the best Peakland scenery and pass via some of the prettiest villages in the Eastern Peak District. Vehicle support in case of a "terminal" breakdown will be provided on both routes.
