The event HQ is the Forestry Centre at Rosliston, right in the heart of the National Forest. The start for all rides is relatively easy for the first 15 Kms taking in some nice quite flattish roads in the Trent Valley. Once the River Trent is crossed the roads become ever more undulating as the route goes north along the Dove Valley, the mini-monnster soon loops back on flatish roads. Some narrow lanes and short climbs will be the first test for the riders on the 2 longer rides. Going further north we encounter the Weaver Hills. As the rides enter the Peak District National Park the roads go upwards and the hedgerows disappear giving ever more challenging terrain to ride over with great views. The longer ride takes riders through Ilam, the beautiful Dovedale and Thorpe to rejoin with the middle ride before Asbourne. Riders then face Old Hill a nasty short steep climb out from Ashbourne before more rolling roads heading back towards the Trent Valley and the Finish at Rosliston. All rides are very challenging and offer you the chance to support the Air Ambulance Trust whilst at the same time having a great day on the bike. Any profit made from the event will be donated to the trust to help them to help you and your friends in times of need.
