Snakes, Cats and Roaches

Description

204km cycling event starting from Sheffield. Controls at Glossop (Free Control), Flash Bar Stores, Wirksworth, Tideswell (Free Control) and Finish: Stannington Community Centre., plus 4 information controls.

A new event going through the Peak District, taking in Snake Pass, Cat and Fiddle, and out to the Roaches. Travel through 4 counties - Yorkshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire, and Derbyshire - in this tough, hilly ride.

The route is hilly throughout, with a westward start through Strines, and over the Snake Pass to Glossop. We weave through the High Peak towns of New Mills and Whaley Bridge towards Macclefield before tackling the 10km Cat and Fiddle climb. Turning off towards Flash, there's a control at Flash Bar Stores, a great spot for lunch. Once we've taken in the majestic views from the Roaches, we travel East to the rural bohemia of Wirksworth, which has plenty of cafes, pubs, and a large Co-Op.  Turning north-west, we move deep into the heart of the Peak, passing through Youlgreave, skirting Bakewell, and into Ashford-in-the-Water before a free control at Tideswell. The final stretch goes through Eyam and Grindleford before the last significant climb up to the Fox House pub. From there it's nearly all free wheeling back into Sheffield. We'll have food and drink at the start and the end. Send an email if you'd like to arrange entry on the day.
