## BIG RIDE DISCLAIMER ##
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. Thank you.
### RIDE SUMMARY ###
Likely a very quiet ride as a large contingent of regulars are doing the manc 100 instead. However, Ed kindly offered up this cracking, but very challenging route for those who fancy it.
Out into the peaks taking in some truly iconic climbs. Views will be stupendous and you’ll really know you have been on a ride after this one!
Please mark your interest so Ed knows whether folk are attending.
## NAVIGATION ##
If you have a GPS device, please download the route so that you can follow it.
Polite request to not ride off of the front if you either do not have the route or you have not studied it.
