The toughest Peak District sportive is back for 2021. The Peak Epic is one of the UK’s most challenging road cycling events comparable in difficulty to the Fred Whitton.
The ride starts and finishes from Lady Manners School in the beautiful Peak District market town of Bakewell. The truly epic route ascends 4000m/ >13000ft in just 170 km/ 105 miles across the full breadth of Peaks taking in the Hope Valley, Edale, Chapel-en-le-Frith, The Goyt Valley/Cat & Fiddle, Macclesfield Forest, Flash, Crowdecote and finally Lathkill Dale.
The majority of the ride is held on narrow country lanes away from the traffic filled A and B roads. The terrain is relentless, continuously up and down, twisting and turning leading to low average speeds e.g the average finish time is around 9 hours. The Peak Epic is certainly not to be underestimated!
If you are looking for real challenge the Peak Epic might just be it!
The Peak Epic is a British Cycling registered sportive run under BC rules and regulations.
