Right in the heart of the glorious Peak District, this Gravel X takes in 85km of the best gravel and back roads.
Starting from Hope, the ride takes in a big off road & tarmac climb, some lovely fast flowing gravel around Hassop, beautiful off road sections over the moors before the quick tracks around the reservoirs.
Within 85km you will see a huge variety of terrain and landscape as we start our season in style.
The Glorious Gravel Series is open to all off-road bikes. While it is aimed primarily at Gravel & Adventure bikes, which are essentially fat tyred drop bar bikes, you are also most welcome on a mountain bike or cyclocross bike. We recommend a tyre width of 33+mm for most for our rides.
What to bring : You will be further from van support or facilities you would find in most towns than with our road trips so it is advisable to take a little more with you.
GPS device with route loaded, Spare tube or Tubeless plug, Pump and/or CO2, Mini tool, Jacket and/or additional layers.
We will email you the GPX route & a full breakdown of the route one week before the ride. Our route director will then be at the start to give you last minute advice and tips. You will be asked to select a start window which we will then confirm one week before the ride to ensure you roll out in group sizes based on current restrictions.
