“Come and join me on a challenging ride through the stunning Lancashire countryside and experience the roads and climbs I regularly train on. This brand new event has been specially organised to help celebrate the launch of the Bradley Wiggins Foundation. I look forward to welcoming you all and riding alongside many of you on what will be a special day for all the family.”
2 route options are available –
“The routes will take you on a tour of Lancashire’s most outstanding natural beauty spots. This includes the Forest of Bowland where you will pass through picturesque villages and farmland of the Ribble Valley, before climbing onto remote open moorland where you will be greeted with stunning views and a silence broken only by your exertions.
On the 160km route you will conquer many challenging climbs and descents which have featured in the Tour of Lancashire, the Tour of Britain and the National Road Race Championships. With renowned climbs such as Barley Fell, Waddington Fell, Nick o’ Pendle, Trough of Bowland, and Longridge Fell forming the breathtaking backdrop to the challenging route. This route has a heritage to match the riders who have raced on its roads in years gone by and who train on it to this day.
The shorter 100km route misses out the northern moorland loop around the Trough of Bowland but still includes Barley Fell, Waddington Fell, Longridge Fell and the Nick o’ Pendle. A shorter challenge but you still get plenty of fantastic scenery and the chance to ride with Brad too.”
