Event Overview

The High Peak Hog is a very challenging ride through the beautiful Peak District. It is organised by cyclists for cyclists.

It has 2 route options. The 83-mile Whole Hog and 50-mile Half Hog both start with a 3-mile ascent of the Snake Pass. The Whole Hog includes the idyllic Edale Valley with it’s twisting climb to Mam Nick, a stunning descent through Winnat’s Pass, up to the gritstone cliffs of Stanage Edge and back to Ladybower Reservoir where it rejoins the Half Hog. Both routes include the three ‘stingers’ of the Strines and finish with the iconic Holme Moss climb and it’s ¼ mile road markings to the summit. You will be rewarded for your efforts with a long descent and a relatively easy return to Glossop along the lovely Torside Valley.

The entry price includes electronic timing and photos of riders on the major climbs to immortalize your efforts. It also includes a hot breakfast before the start, feed stations en route and a hog roast at the finish – you’ll deserve it!

Info for Riders

The High Peak Hog sold out in Jan 2014! We have a reserve list so if riders drop out you may still get a place. You will also get prior warning of when the 2015 event opens to avoid disappointment next year. To add you name to the reserve list please e-mail paultalbot@doctors.org.uk The event is organised by Glossop Kinder Velo Cycling Club and aims to promote our club and cycling in the beautiful Peak District. It is a very challenging ride. No fewer than 5 of the climbs are featured in Simon Warren’s ‘100 Greatest Cycling Climbs’ and the final climb up Holme Moss is in Stage 2 of the 2014 Tour de France. The route is mostly along country lanes and the scenery is simply breathtaking! The entry fee includes free parking, changing/shower facilities, electronic timing and photos of riders on some of the major climbs available on Flickr to download free of charge after the event. You will also get a hot breakfast, feed stations and hog roast (and vegetarian option) at the finish. The bar will also be o
