The Peaks Mountain Bike:
Saturday 23rd June 2012
New Mills School & College
Our RideIt! manager has been described as an 'evil genius' for his daring to design such a challenging, and exhilarating route. This weekends ride is thoroughly rewarding and not for the faint-hearted!
Challenging, technical, tough and grin inducing fun! The Peak District National Park is home to this cheeky ride that demands attention and a spot of skill. Pedaling away from base, we gain height immediately with a steady climb that leads to the first descent which climbs 700ft! This sets the president for the day’s riding; massive climbs, technical challenges and whopping descents are on the menu. Depending on condition on the day, we will take in Jacobs ladder. Due to the technical terrain, there is no long route at this event. The medium route will be more than enough!
Short - 15 miles
Medium - 25 miles
