Stage 3 – The Buttertubs



All ages

  • 162.1 km road cycling


Velo29 love to bring you a new challenge and A Weekend in Hell is exactly that! Inspired by Paris – Roubaix which is called ‘A Sunday in Hell’ this 3 day Sportive has got to be one of the toughest multi-stage events on the calendar. We’ve reinvented 3 of our toughest Sportives from The Velo29 back catalogue. The start/ finish for each stage is the brilliant Dales Bike Centre in Reeth. It’s an awesome setting, easy to reach from the A1 and offers all we need to support this mega challenging weekend! Camping/ Campervan places will be available, email us for details. Each stage has all the great Velo29 features you expect. Awesome feed stops, brilliant mechanical and medical support and the amazing Velo29 atmosphere. 1 change over our regular Sportives is that there won’t be any route signage, you’ll need to ride with a GPS device. If you can ride over 500km and climb over 9,000m in a weekend, we think you can navigate too! The toughest medal to earn in the Sportive Series? ……. It could be!

This event is part of A Weekend in Hell.
