The Beast is our longest and most challenging event of the year, and although some of the climbs are steep (up to 25%) and long, they are all rideable and very rewarding. 

An unforgettable day spent riding some of the back roads of Cumbria, 2 x well stocked and remote feed stations will keep you fueled up for the challenges en route.

Come to Lancaster and use your summer fitness to take on our annual long Lake District  sportive –  108 miles of scenic riding – remote lanes, stunning views, challenging passes, lake shores, forest roads and seaside  promenades – something for everyone to savor awaits.
