Up on the Roof Extension

202km cycling event starting from Ponteland. Controls at Allenheads/Allendale, Haydon Bridge, Merton Hall, Ponteland and Pegswood, plus 5 information controls.

An early season opportunity to ride around the North Pennines (The Roof of England). The route has two main climbs, from Edmundbyers and Wearhead but most of the climbing is gradual with long descents.

Prior to the Edmundbyers climb there is a checkpoint at Pow Hill Country Park. The route is the same as the non extended 161km version but has the addition of a relatively easy extension to Pegswood to make a 200km route for those looking for a PBP qualifying ride or just fancy a few more miles. Entries for this event are limited and may close before the closing date. If entries are not full at the closing date there may only be a limited number of late entries available if any. If you intend to enter and ride this event then early entry is encouraged to secure a place. For entry updates see Facebook Page 'Tyneside Vagabonds Audax Events'.
