EVENT SUMMARY

The 7th Lakeland Loop Sportive, a challenging and rewarding cycle sportive that takes in the stunning scenery the lake District has to offer.

ROUTE INFORMATION

One route option –

  • 69 miles

“The route initially climbs over Loughrigg Terrace and descends to Grasmere, from where it heads North through Keswick and climbs Whinlatter pass. From here the route heads East and South through Gosforth to Eskdale Green and the infamous Hardknott and Wrynose passes. With those challenges completed there is one final ascent from Little Langdale to reach Blea Tarn and start the descent into Great Langdale to finish at the New Dungeon Ghyll. The route is approximately 69 miles and can be described as ‘very challenging’. Experienced cyclists will require gear ratio of 39/27 as a minimum requirement, a compact chainset or triple chainset is strongly advised as the hardest climbs are close to the end of the route and are generally reached in a fatigued state.”
