Event Summary

Event Overview

A choice of two routes, 100km or 70km, through the countryside North of Preston taking in the stunning Trough of Bowland or Bleasdale scenery. With a cafe stop just over half way at the Cobbled Corner in Chipping before returning to the Uclan Arena in Preston.

Or a marshalled family ride consisting of a 10 mile as flat as possible ride to a cafe stop then return. All riders are provided with a free buffet on thier return and plenty of laughs and pleasent conversation throughout the day.

The emphasis is on a fun day out, not a competitive ride. We have had a wide range of abilities turn up in previous events, ranging from full on Pro riders to novices taking on a challenge. All are welcome, and all profits go to The Lewis Balyckyi trust Fund to support young cycling talent racing abroad.
