The Leg Breaker - 65 miles (must be completed within 5hrs 30mins) starts at 9.00am

See below and our website for further details of each ride.

Times include any time spent at the optional cafe stop.

The Leg Breaker can be cut short (and thus become the Sore Legs) by cutting out the additional 15 miles and going straight to the cafe stop halfway round. This option is not available on the Crippler.

The Fisherman is a totally different ride and stops at a fishing lakes cafe, hence the name.

Route is all on quiet lanes and you will be surprised at how hilly the route is.

As there is a limit of 200 riders (First come, first served), it is advised that you pre-enter (Sorry, this is the old fashioned way with a cheque, or cash, in the post) but you may enter on the line:- its only £4 which includes route sheet, certificate, toilets and changing facilities and off road car parking. NOTE - Route markers and sag wagon are NOT supplied at this low price, you are expected to be self reliant.

Under 18's (on the day of the event) must be accompanied by parent or have parent's written consent.

*The Coritani were a tribe of ancient Britons who lived in a hill fort on top of Burrough Hill, one of the highest points on the route.
