Tour of the Pennines 17th September

Now in it's third year the Tour of the Pennines has quickly established it'self as an end of season classic. Organised by the Team Torelli Cycling Club. The event recreates the Professional Tour of the Pennines event which was run throughout the 70's 80' and 90's.

Starting at the Radclyffe Athletics Centre in Chadderton the route takes the riders around the the Saddleworth Moors dipping into the West Yorkshire before heading back to Lancashire. Stunning Scenery, Tough climbs including the much feared Scape Goat Hill and fast descents. Since the moving of the Tour of the Peak to an date in August it makes this event a great way to sign of the season North West.

This year we are hoping to have some ex pros who rode the professional event. Last year we had Jack Kershaw from Wightman/Gibsport/Knight, and Falcon Pro teams out supporting the event.

This year we have got the following features;

* Electronic Timing
* High Five Feeding Stations
* Support Vehicles
* GPS Dowloads
* Free Traditional Lancashire Pie & Peas Supper
* Free Hot Drinks after the event
* Support Vehicles
* Challenging Climbs
* Fast Descents
* Stunning Scenery
* Good Quality Roads
* Professional Photographer

* Preview Video Ride
* Event Video
* Changing Rooms
* Showers Car Parking
* Friendly Marshals
* Well Signed Route, we even mark the roads
* Route Cards

Please be aware that as the advert says ' it does exactly what it says on the tin'. This is the Tour of the Pennines which means hills. Only riders that are confident that they are fit enough for this challenge should enter.
