An annual mountain biking event, now in its 22nd year, over a 26 mile way-marked course with 4000 feet of ascent, half off road and half on country roads.
Set in the beautiful Calder valley, the route runs over tracks and lanes across the surrounding moors with stunning views of the area. There are, however, some steep ascents and descents as the route takes you from moor top to moor top in these high Pennine valleys.
The route is fully signed, gates and other obstacles are manned by event marshals, and if you find it impossible to continue, we will transport you back to the HQ. Full route information and maps can be found on our website.
Safety is covered by an experienced team with First Aiders, Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team and radio communications by Calderdale Raynet.
Hot food and drinks are available at the clubhouse. There is also a licenced bar run by the cricket club that will be open in the afternoon.
Registration at Sowerby Cricket Club, St Peters Avenue, Sowerby, Sowerby Bridge, HX6 1BL. Car parking available in school car park (opposite) and on roadside.
Each competitor receives a certificate of achievement and an event momento.
The event is run by the 24th St Paul's Sowerby Bridge Scout Group.
