Pit yourself against the brutal terrain of Hope Valley in Derbyshire in this rocky, muddy, adrenaline pumping off road ride. Choose from 3 routes, from a technical 23 miles, up to a tricky 43 miles.

Completely planned, organised and managed by the British Heart Foundation, this event exists in order to raise funds for our life saving research. This year we are asking you all to try and raise at least £350 to make a difference. 

Which route will you choose?

Blue route: 23 miles with 1,065m of climbing. This route heads for the more technical trails. It may not be long but it packs a punch.

Sign up for the Blue route

Red route: 24 miles with 1,200m of climbing. Expect challenging inclines and a rocky descent, which will certainly test your skill. Just don't forget to take in the stunning views along the way!

Sign up for the Red route

Black route: 43 miles with 2,130m of climbing. This route is the best of both, literally taking on both rides in one. It's a huge, but epic undertaking.
