You can download the rider times from our Peak District Ride It event using the links below -
Just a reminder that the Sunday Sportive is sold out – please do not come to the event hoping for cancellations, we won’t be accepting on the day entries.
PLEASE BRING YOUR HELMET TO REGISTRATION. You will not be able to register without it and you’ll have to go back to your car to retrieve it.
There is parking available on site in the marked bays. Once this is full there is additional parking around the back of the school ( We’ll put some signs up for this but the first parking is a one way system so when you pop back out onto the road turn right, at the cross roads turn right and then at the DIY shop 100mts turn right!!) If we manage to fill this then there’s the road outside.
Before I go any further I would like to point out that THIS IS NOT A RACE. You will not be given a rank and all times will be displayed in a non-sortable format in rider number order. Please help us to continue running a popular friendly event by not riding in such a way to obstruct the road and upset other users. Stop at junctions and traffic lights, and obey the highway code. Do not ride at silly speeds around blind bends or on steep descents. We do not insure you for your actions so if you do hit a car or pedestrian YOU will be responsible for any damages caused by your riding.
This is in the 6th form centre, follow signs to registration.
I have not been out and the course is not due to be put up until tomorrow, but it’s hot and sunny here and it’s never very muddy so I expect it to be dry and dusty…..
It’s also going to be a tough course, hence only two routes. Please be cautious on those descents, they are going to be steep and technical so keep your speed and bike under control.
Keep yourselves hydrated – there will be one drink station on the short and two on the Medium ( which is the longest route) with plenty of water.
As it’s so sunny I expect there to be a lot of walkers around so please be courteous to them all, remember they want to enjoy the countryside too and not get constantly buzzed by bikers!!
Short 16miles elevation 3000ft Drink station at 8.5miles
Medium 27 miles elevation 5100ft Drinks at 10 and 16 miles
It’s not a race!
Please give way to other trail users, walkers, horse riders etc. If you come across a Horse, please let the rider know you are there in plenty of time and follow their instructions. Remember, if you spook the horse it might hurt you or other people and you are responsible for you actions and the consequences!! Please also close all gates you might come across.
I hope you all have the day we did today, but a little bit cooler…… The roads are in ok condition but, like the rest of the country, they are prone to pot holes. Please keep your eye out for them and if you are travelling in a group, please shout out warnings to those behind. We also use small lanes, so keep your speed down and be aware that there might be cars around that bend. On larger roads please keep to single file unless it’s safe to do so.

Short -29miles Elevation 3200ft
Medium -49miles Elevation 5900ft
Long -74miles Elevation 10000ft

Event centre closes at 5pm – Hot food will finish at 4pm.
This is not a race!!
Please obey the highway code, stop at junctions and only ride two abreast where it is safe to do so – not on main roads or winding country lanes where cars travelling at speed will not be able to see you and stop!!!! If you cause and accident, you are responsible for the consequences and any costs.
