“The Polkadot Challenge™ – “Spud” Riley Memorial Gran Fondo starts in Cheshire and travels into Derbyshire, Staffordshire and back into Derbyshire passing through the beautiful Dovedale area and into the true Peaks region. The majority of the climbs are short and steep, however the penultimate climb across the High Edge moors to join the top of the famous Cat & Fiddle is 5 miles in length. On the long route there are 16 official climbs (but plenty of unlisted ones) and on the short route there are 8 official climbs. All turns and climbs are signed and there are two feeding/control stations (one on the shorter route)”
