This 612 km Audax event follows a hilly, anti-clockwise circuit circling northern England. The event has a predicted 10000+ metres of climbing. Bag drop to Langwathby available. Enjoy an amphitheatre of scenery as you circumnavigate northern England passing through several National Parks including the Yorkshire Dales; North Yorks' Moors and the Lake District. Saturday sees the riders head north-easterly out of Lancashire, passing through the Ribble Valley before climbing over the North Yorks' Moors to the east coast. The northern Pennines follow, where a food/sleep station has been arranged at 392 km. After clearing the Langwathby control, riders will be into the Lake District; climbing over some legendary Lakeland passes including: Whinlatter; Hardknott and Wrynose.
