This ride has changed for 2020 and will take you to the edge of Tutbury and then through Marchington, Abbots Bromley and on towards Blithfield Reservoir. Cycling through the beautiful Staffordshire and Derbyshire countryside, it is not without its challenging hills with Strava start and finish points for the KOM/QOM. The route heads back to the Forestry Centre via Hoar Cross Village.



“Great event yesterday guys. Route, feed stations, Marshall’s and motorbike were excellent as usual.

Only scope for improvement could be some electrolyte sports drink tablets or powder which can be added to the water at the feed stops. I guess it’s personal taste but the blue stuff in the bottle was a bit interesting on the palate”.

“See you next year!”
