Not one for the faint hearted or for those that like flat roads we promise back to back tough 20% gradient climbs throughout the 63km long route option which has a total of 1736m of ascent including the classic climbs of Oughtibridge, Midhopestones and Bradfield. The shorter 33km route in the same area has 890m of climbing.
