Hot on the heals of our successful Secret Sortie and a Bridge too Gnar virtual events , we thought we’d do a Christmas special – the Hivernal !
This time we’re heading out east and over the border to the badlands of north Nottinghamshire. This area has miles of gravel farm tracks, byways and forest trails just waiting to be ridden. They also hold up a bit better to weather than some of our routes in the Peak District, so are more suitable for this time of year.
Pay your entry fee and I’ll send you a very special Hivernal patch and a link to a Ride with GPS page with the route details on.
This route has not appeared on any of our sites and has been designed especially for this event. It starts at Cresswell Crags near Chesterfield and is roughly 110 km long and 650 metres of climb. It follows our normal event format – it’s a big day out taking in a mix of bridleways, white roads and quiet lanes. Don’t expect boring – if you’ve ever ridden one of our events you know we don’t do that.
It goes without saying that if you do enter not only will you make our day, but you will do so at your own risk and we’re not responsible if you get yourself into a bit of a tangle.
