Join us in exploring the many miles of remote cycling country in and around this outstanding area that is rarely ridden except by local enthusiasts (like us).  Quiet roads and lanes are followed throughout the route – along with some of the breathtaking scenery and challenging ascents that Wiggo used to prepare for the 2012 Tour de France - which of course he won.

The event would be a great weekend escape as Lancaster is super accessable by both road and rail + there is a choice of places to stay right on the start line.
