Charity cycle ride issues a call for competitors

Cycling challenge the Peak District 100 will take place next month and children’s

charity Action Medical Research is calling for riders to sign up now for the event, on Sunday, June 30.

There is a choice of Cool (47 miles), Classic (75 miles) and Champion (100 miles) routes, setting out from the HSBC Sports Club in Dore, Sheffield.

The routes take in stunning scenery and unparalleled cycling terrain along the way to present you with this tough ride. All three distances promise awe-inspiring views as riders tour this beautiful national park. Challenging climbs on the longer routes include up Mam Nick from Edale and then all three climb up Froggatt on the way back.

All riders will take in part of the Derbyshire Dales, with the longer routes also passing through the Hope and Goyt Valleys.

This event is part of the charity’s popular RIDE100 series of one-day bike rides.

Supported by leading bike brand Trek, these rides take place in fantastic cycling locations across the UK. All include chip timing, food and water stations, lunch, marshals and mechanics.
