Info for Riders

The event HQ is right in the heart of the National Forest. The start for both rides is relatively easy for the first 15 Kms taking in some nice 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. Some narrow lanes and short climbs will be the first test for the riders. Going further north we encounter the Weaver Hills for the longer ride and Stanton Bank for the shorter ride. 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 rides takes riders through Ilam, the beautiful Dovedale and Thorpe to rejoin with the shorter ride before Ashbourne. where more rolling roads heading back towards the Trent Valley and the Finish at Rosliston. Official photographs for the event will be provided by Katie Lancaster from
