Grindleford Goat - 54km or 109km Road Cycle Sportive
4 people attending
8 places left
Join OutdoorLads on the Grindleford Goat cyclo-sportive, a challenging event in the heart of the Peak District.
It features three fully supported routes, all starting and finishing in Grindleford. The most challenging ride is the 109km Billy featuring some of the most demanding climbs and exciting descents in the Peak District. The mid route Nanny will be a tour of 54km suitable for reasonably fit adults and will take in some of our most stunning scenery and natural beauty. There is also a 60km gravel route if so inclined. The entry fee raises money for the local community shop.
This is a sportive event organised by a third party. You will need to sign up through the Grindleford Goat event page. We are very unlikely to cycle together as we all have differing levels of fitness. Will the event leader is slow on hills and doesn't deny it.
The routes can be viewed here.
If you have any questions about the event leader.
