A ride of contrasts taking in the beauty of the Peak District and the empty expanses of the Fens. A ride of two halves, with an officially hilly (AAA points!) rolling route outbound culminating in a gentle traverse of the Peak District. Once past the halfway point though, all of that is behind you and it's mostly flat all the way home. The route includes two off-road sections, the Monsal Trail out of Buxton and then after the night control at Egmanton Village Hall, the NCR647, both converted railwail lines (flat!). Road surfaces on the off road sections are rideable on road tyres, about half and half compacted gravel and blacktop. HQ is Chalfont St Peter Community Centre where we will provide our internationally renowned 'No-Mod-Cons' accomodation for those who fancy a lie in before the depart on Saturday morning. Entry also includes accommodation on Sunday night with breakfast and Supper, and R&R options at Egmanton Village Hall (340k). If the route appeals but you'd like a more leisurely ride than a 40 hour BRM 600km allows, checkout the BBC LONDON GRAND TOUR which is validated as an AUK BR with a time limit of 43h hours.
