RIDE IT is a series of non-competitive cycle events taking place across the country and aimed at riders of all abilities. At every ride you’ll find a choice of fully waymarked routes, well stocked feed stations sponsored by High 5 Sports Nutrition, mechanical and sweeper van support if things go wrong, electronic chip timing to record your ride and a finishers medal waiting for you at the end.
One of the original RIDE IT venues, this route is a fantastic example of the stunning road cycling on offer in the north of England. The natural contours of the land make for a hilly, challenging route that will reward riders for their winter efforts! The route loops over the picturesque Todmorden and Hebden Bridge, taking in the local moors and a great stretch of remote, panoramic riding. The challenging nature of the ride continues but will also provide some boasting rights among friends with a spin over the infamous Cragg Vale, the longest continual climb in England and feature of the 2014 Tour de France. This ride is an excellent opportunity to clock up some early season mileage in the great British countryside.
