A spring gravel classic in the Peaks taking in the heart of this stunning region.

Starting in Buxton, we take on the best gravel in the Peaks with glorious views in all directions as we head east to Bakewell & then south to the edge of the Peaks.

Unlike most of the road & MTB routes through this region, this ride is (relatively) flat / rolling with just over 1,000m elevation on the 100km long course. The gravel is well maintained and smooth so it’s suitable for riders of all abilities & experience. A great way to see one of the UK’s most beautiful regions.

What’s Included

  • GPX Files
  • Pre ride briefing
  • Feed stops approximately every 30km
  • Free coffee & beer at the finish
  • Ride marshals supporting you on the route

Preparing for the Ride

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.
