This classic sportive, named after and on the same route as the original Tour of the Peak road race, which ran from 1943 through to 2005.
Follow in the wheel tracks of some of the top original British bike racers that have graced these roads, Malcolm Elliot, Mark Lovatt, John Tanner, Chris Lillywhite and Matt Stephens to name just a few. Have you got what it takes to attempt this challenging ride? The long route is probably one of the toughest challenges that can be done at 115 Miles and over 10,000ft of climbing, it certainly isn’t to be underestimated! A little more tame but still with the killer mile of Winnats Pass, the medium route is 62 miles but still manages to squeeze in over 5000ft of climbing, a great starting point, if you are looking for a challenge and the long route, is just too much! Both routes start from Bakewell Showground, giving you beautiful surroundings to start and finish your day, if you get chance, call in and pick up a Bakewell Pudding, not to be missed! We certainly did when we last visited.
