EVENT SUMMARY

The John ‘Tommo’ Thompson memorial ride takes place in the beautiful hilly countryside of the White Peak and Staffordshire Moorlands. Now, in its second year, the ‘Tommo’ starts and finishes from the picturesque Carsington Water.

ROUTE INFORMATION

3 route options are available –

  • Long 125km/77 miles 2500m of ascent
  • Medium 76km/47 miles 1400m of ascent
  • Short 45km/ 28 miles 740m of ascent

“The route takes in two climbs frequently used on the Tour of Britain, Ramshorn and the legendary Cat 1 ascent of Gun Hill. The climbing does not stop there, with plenty of other tough climbs including Flash,
Crowdecote, Stanton on the Peak, Riber Castle and Cromford Hill to name just a few. Both the Long and Medium routes do provide quite a sting in the tale, with a tough final 10-20km, so do not say you were not warned!”
