Event Summary

Event Overview

Mills Hills is a challenging route around West Yorkshire. Will you win the Golden Cobble or the Loot of the Coiners Trophy for daft shenanigans? Keep pedalling though as there's spot prizes too!

The road routes include Englands longest continuous incline Cragg Vale (968' in 5.5 miles) and the legendary Ripponden Bank before heading through mill towns and climbing Stocks Lane on it's way to Bronte country and a romp round the quiet moorland roads.

If you're a fan of cyclo cross there's an option for you too. Taking inspiration for the route from the old school 1950's style of riding. There's plenty of cobbles too!

And if that all gives you an appetite we have The Porkery with their amazing pies afterwards.

With photography from Sport Sunday.
