Knock Ventoux 300
300km cycling event starting from Burnley, Lancashire. Controls at Warton (Cumbria), Kirkby Lonsdale, Langwathby and Settle. A 300 km Audax, long-distance cycling event from Lancashire to the Summit of Great Dun Fell and back again - in a day! ** A(1) accommodation is for the night after the event - not the night before **
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 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. No EoL this year!
