The Secret Sortie


In stock



The Secret Sortie was our first virtual event. A cunning plan, originally hatched during the great lockdown of 2020, the route takes in some of the Peak District’s finest trails. By entering you not only get a GPX file  with the route on but a very special patch too.

Pay your entry fee between now and t we’ll email you a link to a top secret page on Ride with GPS with a route on it. Once you’ve got the route you’re free to follow it whenever is convenient for you.

This route has not appeared on any of our sites and has been designed especially for this event. It starts at Fox House on the edge of Sheffield and is roughly 100 km long and around 1800 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 in the Peak District. Don’t expect flat and boring – if you’ve ever ridden one of our events you know we don’t do that.

Not only that, but all entrants will get a very special Secret Sortie patch to sew on to whatever you like.

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.
