Our North Derbyshire Challenge Sportive will start from Markeaton Park in Derby and head up into the Peak District taking in some stunning scenery on the way. With four routes on offer the Sportive is aimed at all levels of age and ability.
All routes initially head out to Carsington Reservoir with the 40km turning back at Knockerdown. The 80km goes as far as Darley Dale, looping round Tansley and Crich while the 160km route goes up to Edale, coming back through Hope, Grindleford and Beeley before joining up with the 80km route again to return home to Markeaton Park. We are in the process of recce-ing the 120km route and will post more details soon.
Without doubt, there's plenty of climbing involved!
There are four fully stocked feed stations across all four routes and riders can be welcomed back with a hot meal and drink when they finish.
You can enter an individual or join friends/colleagues in the Geldards Team Distance Challenge. Teams of 4+ are eligible for discounts.
