Children’s charity Action Medical Research is inviting cycling enthusiasts to grab the last few places for one of its toughest bike challenge, the Peak District 100 that takes place on Sunday 10th June. There’s a choice of 100 mile of 100km routes and both promise some challenging terrain.
Participants will start some of the most demanding cycling terrain in England as they tackle numerous climbs and descents but be rewarded by stunning scenery and a fantastic sense of achievement. Besides tackling climbs such as Mam Nick, the Cat & Fiddle and up the long climb of Froggatt, the route takes in Hope and Goyt Valleys, Macclesfield Forest and the Derbyshire Dales.
The event is supported by Trek Bikes and all cyclists participating in the Peak District 100 will be raising money to help fund medical research into conditions affecting babies and children. As with all the RIDE 100 events you’ll also get chip timing, food and water stations, lunch, marshals and mechanic support to make sure the day goes smoothly.
Val Hogg, Event Manager at Action Medical Research says: “I have every admiration for all the fantastic people who have signed up for this great, but very challenging ride. As they cross the finish line they will feel an amazing sense of achievement: not only for completing the ride, but also in knowing that by taking part they will have helped us to make a real difference to sick babies and children.”
