PLEASE NOTE 8am START!
Please note, our big rides are not for the feint hearted and they are really hilly, tough but ultimately enjoyable rides. We have a lunch stop but they are longer, hillier and slightly faster than our standard rides. If you’re unsure then please speak to us and come to a standard ride first. We’re not ones to be too specific about speed but ideally shouldn’t be much slower than around 12mph average around this sort of course, as otherwise they just take way too long.
September’s Big ride is planned and ran by our resident long distance maniac, Brendan :)
Thanks for the route Bren.
It heads out to Pendle, Clocks in at 70 miles with over 5000ft of climbing. Here’s the route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/24421936
Should be a total corker!
