Knock Ventoux 300

302km cycling event starting from Burnley, Lancashire. Controls at Carnforth, Kirkby Lonsdale, Appleby, Reeth and Skipton.

A 300 km Audax, long-distance cycling event from Lancashire to the summit of Great Dun Fell and back again - in a day! No EoL this year! The event counts as a 300 km qualifier for PBP! 8 entries as at: 14.12.2018

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! Overall, a wonderful day's cycling with beautiful scenery, covering some wild and exposed moorland (roads). YACF discussion thread here: https://yacf.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=95951.0
