Gear up for the Cycle Derby Spring Classic

Markeaton Park, Derby

Meander through country lanes on a scenic but challenging bike ride through the Derbyshire countryside this April.

Enjoy 40km of energetic fun as you head out towards the magnificent Kedleston Hall and the quaint village of Church Broughton, along with various other charming countryside locations before returning to Markeaton Park Event Village where you'll be greeted with applause and cheering - a feeling that's well worth the effort!

Or if you're up for a challenge, tackle the 80km or 160km route towards Kedleston Hall, Sutton on the Hill before leaving Derbyshire. This is where the rides split in two, with the 80km route heading towards Newborough and Needwood; the 160km route is not for the faint-hearted and will head towards Blithfield Reservoir, eventually climbing over the famous Cannock Chase.

Enjoy the party atmosphere as you arrive back to the Event Village at Markeaton Park, where you'll be welcomed by hot food, drinks and a massage to ease those aching muscles.
