BAND OF CLIMBERS

UK'S TOUGHEST GROUP RIDES - SHEFFIELD

SUPPORTED BY

FREE GROUP RIDE

This is the BIG one. Join Band of Climbers for the 3rd in our series of summer group rides, and the only ride with over 3000m of elevation. This is a route born from our Lockdown Challenge in 2020, and it's the toughest route we could find of its kind in the UK. 21 climbs, less than 4km of flat. LOTS of Steep. And abeautiful route too around some stunning Peak District Scenery.

This route is still the toughest 100km ride we've ever ridden. It's relentless and stunning all at the same time. We know many of you have ridden it since we shared the route, and now this is your chance to ride it with us.

WHERE AND WHEN

NO DROP RIDE

This is a 100km (62 miles) group ride, which will be ridden at a relaxed pace. This is not a race, and this will be a no drop ride. There is over 3000m of elevation. (9800ft) with 6 21 climbs en route, including Pea Royd Lane, The Dale, and the Cote de Bradfield.

THE START

The Sheffield group ride will take place on Sunday 27th June. The ride will start at 8am, with small gaps to break the group into smaller numbers due to Covid. Please aim to arrive at the start location no later than 07.45am, for a 8am roll out. Once you have signed up, the route will be be emailed to you a week before the event.

SELF SUPPORTED

As this is a free group ride on open roads, there is no mechanical support on the course, and the route is not marked. There will be several Band of Climbers ride leaders on course to make sure the group completes the ride, and we will send the STRAVA Route 1 week before the ride to download onto your GPS computers.

You will need to bring your own tools, tubes and any spares in the event of a mechanical issue. Due to the severity of the gradients on the climbs and descents, we strongly suggest ensuring your brake pads and chain are in a good condition. Your bike and legs will be tested to the limit on this ride.

FEED STATION BY OTE

All of our summer group rides will have a mobile feed station, kindly supplied by OTE Sports. The feed stations are stocked with water plus Electrolyte Drinks, caffeine bars and anytime protein bars to make sure you ride strong and complete each ride. You will also find exclusive offers and gifts in your BoC goody bag at the end of each ride.
