The Raptor starts and finishes on the outskirts of Lancaster, and is a great ride that explores the many miles of remote cycling country in and around the nearby area of Bowland. 

Quiet roads and lanes throughout – along with breathtaking scenery and challenging ascents. 

Pedal to the very centre of The British Isles (the phone box on Dunsop Bridges village green) as well as experiencing some of the roads that Wiggo rode to get ready for the 2012 Tour de France and Olympic Games…
