Welcome to The Sam Houghton Mountain Bike Challenge.

The Challenge is a timed mountain bike ride starting and finishing at the Mill Yard, Staveley and covering the Longsleddale, Kentmere & Troutbeck Valleys and taking in Garburn Pass.  It is organised in memory of Sam Houghton, a keen mountain biker who sadly lost his battle against cancer and died aged only 22 in May 2006. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Cancer Research UK. 

New for 2017, an e-bike category for solos who will be riding electric bikes.  To enter this category, select 'Solo' below and then click the e-bike button on the second page.

Entry Fees:
Solo: £27
Pair: £54
Team of 3/4 adults: £27 per person
'Youth and Experience' (short course only) - £27 per adult, £10 per child (under 16)

All entries include a free post-race meal courtesy of Wilf's Cafe, plus entry to the event after-party in the Hawkshead Beer Hall!!

Should you wish to make an additional donation to the event, this can be done during the entry process; if you are a UK taxpayer donations via this system can be Gift Aided to give maximum benefit to Cancer Research UK.  Alternatively, visit our JustGiving page to see how our fundraising is going!
