Sportive open to public and charity riders

Peak District

Full details

Challenge yourself to compete in the tour ride 100 - an open event with courses covering 50 or 100 miles that's attracting the best amateur cyclists in the UK. You can ride to benefit one of the key charities - Action Medical Research or Sue Ryder - or just join in to challenge yourself.

The exact course is still to be determined, so keep a watch on this page or the Ordnance Survey blog for the latest updates, but given that it's going to be in the peak district there are undoubtedly going to be some challenging climbs and tricky descents to conquer. The event is fully signed and marshalled, but both open and charity places are limited, so make sure you get your booking in early.
