Cycle Derby North Derbyshire Challenge

Once again our HQ is the Craft Village at Markeaton Park and all routes head out towards Carsington reservoir before splitting up to cover the different distances. We've included some challenging but not unsurmountable hills including Two Dales, Beeley Moor and that one that takes you by surprise with 5km to go!

​All routes are fully marked before, at and after each junction but you'll also get a route map to stick in your back pocket as well as the opportunity to download the route onto a GPS device. Entry fee includes:
