IMPORTANT: To the best of our knowledge the details provided are accurate at the time of listing. However, as with any outdoor event of this type, there can always be unforeseen circumstances that will lead to changes or cancellations. For all demo days, please check with the organiser directly to confirm the event is going ahead, timing, location, bike availability and any other additional detail.
Set in the beautiful Calder valley, the route runs over tracks and lanes across the surrounding moors with stunning views of the area. There are, however, some steep ascents and descents as the route takes you from moor top to moor top in these high Pennine valleys.
The route is fully signed, gates and other obstacles are manned by event marshals, and if you find it impossible to continue, we will transport you back to our HQ at the finish point. Full route information and maps can be found on our website.
Safety is covered by an experienced team with First Aiders, Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team and radio communications by Calderdale Raynet.
Hot food and drinks are available at the clubhouse.
Entry fee is £18 per rider if booked before the week before the event, £22 after that, £25 on the day.
Registration at Sowerby Tennis & Bowling Club, St Peters Avenue, Sowerby, Sowerby Bridge, HX6 1HB. Car parking available in school car park (opposite) and on roadside.
Each competitor receives a certificate of achievement and an event momento.
The event is run by the 24th St Paul's Sowerby Bridge Scout Group.
