Enjoy 40km of fun as you head out towards Kedleston Hall and Kirk Langley, as far as Longford, riding towards Sutton on the Hill and past Dalbury before returning back to Markeaton Park Event Village.

The 80km and 160km route will take riders towards Kedleston Hall, Sutton on the Hill before leaving Derbyshire.  This is where the rides split 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 and drinks and a massage to ease those aching muscles!

Now you have mastered the road – enjoy the thrill of racing around the new 250 metre indoor cycle track at Derby Arena.  Sessions last an hour and provide the perfect opportunity for new riders to ‘have a go’ at track riding.
