This year’s event,  will once again feature a closed road roll out for all riders to start en masse, before the first gentle climb and a new section of the route towards the Pennines.


We raise money to support our beneficiaries through rider entries, but of course you are free and welcome to raise more, or donate, should you wish as we try and keep costs down in today’s spiralling events market.

We were hoping for reasonable weather, though being the Pennines snow has made an appearance on Holme Moss before.

Thanks for your interest and participation in this event in the past and I hope to see you all again this year, Safe Cycling

This is not a commercial event and profits are donated to charities and good causes, so far in the region of £60,000 has been raised.

Previous editions have raised money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, The Dave Rayner Fund, One Community and Combat Stress.

As this event is for charity, NO refunds are made on entry fees and we would encourage riders to consider using the event to raise sponsorship.
