Banbury Cross

410km cycling event starting from Heeley, Sheffield. Controls at Bolsover, Ollerton, East Bridgford Services, Harborough Services, Banbury, Measham, Willington Services and Ashbourne, plus 2 information controls.

Ride your own choice of steed through the night to Banbury Cross, though rings on fingers, bells on toes and music wherever you go are optional (and not included in the entry fee). Rolling outward leg, hilly return.

Get the nighttime leg over while you're still reasonably fresh, as you traverse the undulating terrain of east Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Northamptonshire. Refreshment and rest opportunities at several 24-hour service stations. After paying homage to the Cross (not the original), daydream through the return via the centre of England and the Peak District hills. Online entries open to 18.00 on 22/06. Places may be available on the day, but you must check with the organiser beforehand. GPS route file will be sent to all advance entrants who provide an email address.
