Sunday 17th February 2013
A new event for 2013 taking place on the final day of the Bike & Triathlon Show at Manchester Central.
A choice of two route options –
- 46 miles
- 77 miles
“The shorter route has been specially chosen to be suitable for riders with a range of abilities, and features 1,181 metres of climbing; the longer course, unsurprisingly, is much tougher, taking in the area where the Pennines meet the Peak District, with 2,625 metres of vertical ascending.
While the shorter itinerary turns south at Tintwistle to head the quick way to Glossop, the longer one also takes in the Torside Reservoir; it rejoins the former at Hadfield, then after Glossop, the two routes diverge again, with the 46-mile one turning back towards Manchester, while the 77-mile version starts a loop that includes Edale, Hope, Castleton and Chapel-en-le-Firth.”
