Great Dun Fell Radar Station sits on almost the highest point of the Pennines and at 2,700 feet the tarmac road to the top is regarded as England's highest. By kind permission of the landowners Sport in Action is delighted to promote this event giving cyclists the opportunity for a mountain top finish like the grand tours! Before the climb participants will be able to enjoy 60 or so undulating miles through the beautiful Eden Valley as well as skirting the edge of the Lake District. The event will be used to raise money for Cancer Research, with Sport in Action donating a proportion of each entry fee to the charity.
