There are two rides making up the Polkadot Cycling Challenge – 60 miles and 100 miles.
Both the routes have a number of categorised and signed climbs of varying length and severity. The area is one of outstanding natural beauty. Tough terrain for the cyclist is rewarded with good vantage points and excellent views of this rugged landscape.
Both the rides are fully signposted with marshals at key points. The riders are electronically timed for each route. There is also technical assistance and a broom wagon should that be required. Both distances have a number of feed stations, food and drink will be provided at each stop.
The Polkadot Cycling Challenge had a change of routes for 2013 which will offer previous participants a new angle on this event. It is one of the toughest sportives on the calendar and a memorable day out for all abilities is guaranteed.
Entry forms will be available soon from the website but in the meantime if you have any queries please send a message via the above email. Thank you.
