RIDE OVERVIEW

A gravel epic in the north of the Peak District. This 110km loop starts & finishes in Hope and heads up into the Dark Peak, the most remote part of the region. The route has a lot of variety with sections over rugged moors, passed reservoirs, more technical riding in dense woodland and some punchy off road climbs.

Terrain & Bike Choice: The route goes over all types of terrain including rough singletrack, smooth gravel, tarmac & bridleway. There are a couple of more remote technical sections.
