An interesting route which takes you through Staffordshire and Derbyshire countryside with a few nice hills to climb and with Strava start and finish points for the KOM/QOM. Weaver Hill is the southernmost point of the Pennines and is in the White Peak District. It has a maximum gradient of 10% with over a 1,000 ft of climbing. Pushing onwards to the beautiful villages of Ilam and Thorpe, you pass by Carsington Water and Bradbourne Village before the last 30 miles back to the Forestry Centre. This year we are bypassing Ashbourne, so if you are a frequent rider please note the revised route and the new location of the feed station.
