Knock Ventoux 300

300km cycling event starting from Padiham, Lancashire. Controls at Carnforth, Kirkby Lonsdale, Temple Sowerby and Tan Hill Inn.

A 300 km Audax, long-distance cycling event from Lancashire to the summit of Great Dun Fell and back again - in a day! Entries so far: 24. Last updated: 16.05.2017

A clockwise circuit circling northern England, with the ascent to the summit of Great Dun Fell, Britain's highest paved road at 847m the 'highlight' of the ride! The early part of this randonnee climbs through the Trough of Bowland before descending into the Lune Valley, following pleasant country lanes and B-roads. An incursion into Cumbria introduces riders to the mighty Great Dun Fell; the highest paved road accessible by bicycle in the UK! After descending the mountain, the ride climbs over the wild and exposed moorland around Arkengarthdale - past Tan Hill Inn - and into Swaledale. The final stage focuses primarily on the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Overall, a wonderful day's cycling with beautiful scenery, covering some wild and exposed moorland (roads), but also close enough to mid-summer's day for maximium use of daylight.
