Our most popular ‘signature’ ride is *new and future proofed 105km Billy, featuring some of the most demanding climbs and exciting descents in this part of the Peak District.

A challenging route – spot prizes for the two big climbs in our Strava Club. 

104.59km distance 1,999m elevation gain

After a steady and joyous loop up to and alongside the grandeur of Stanage Edge, you drop into the Hope Valley before turning left into the stunning Edale valley. Over your left shoulder you are accompanied by the splendid Lose Hill, the craggy Back Tor and the Great Ridge in all it’s grandeur.
Looming in the distance is the monumental Mam Nick. Every cyclist must do this climb once. 

After well earned snacks and a hot drink, you begin a beautiful spin through White Peak gorges and typical villages as you work towards the welcome feed station at Monyash.
Fortified with homemade flapjack, cakes, local veggie and sausage rolls, the road to Youlgreave beckons.

After an exciting descent, the route turns left at Darley Dale and winds through the world famous Chatsworth Estate. Then on to Great Longstone and the fabulous climb up Longstone Edge.

Quiet roads home through Foolow and onto the plague village of Eyam before dropping down to the event centre and a well earned Hungry Buddha curry or Sunshine Pizza.
