A great way to blow away the winter cobwebs!
Two great routes to choose from which take you through scenic roads with beautiful views of Howgills, Dent and Barbon. Both routes head generally south eastwards through Cumbria taking some very quiet valleys that you may be unaware of (unless you’ve done this sportive before of course!) as well as a few tasty climbs and some seriously quick descents.
This year we have a family ride which takes you from the Mill Yard in Staveley to Burneside, though Bowston and back. Limited to 30 places we have guides to assist the younger families round. Finish in time for breakfast at More Bakery or Wilf’s Cafe!
The timed hill climb of the day takes you up Shacklabank. A tricky little climb which will see the fastest male / female crowned King / Queen of the mountain with a Wheelbase team jersey.
Choose the long route and head further afield but get a bonus refreshments stop at Sedbergh village hall before heading back to Staveley for tea, cake and time to drool over the latest carbon fibre beauties in the shop!
