CANCELLED – Great Dun Fell sportive
July 22, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm£23 – £27
THIS EVENT IS NOW CANCELLED
Regarded as one of the UK’s top cycling climbs, Great Dun Fell is the sting in the tale of this unique cycle sportive. Starting in the historic market town of Appleby the route undulates through the beautiful Eden Valley and skirts the edge of the Lake District before arriving at the foot of the final 4.4 mile ascent.
Great Dun Fell Radar Station sits at almost the highest point of the Pennines. The road up to the top is regarded as the highest tarmac road in England. This sportive gives cyclists the rare opportunity of a mountain top finish in a British cycle sportive event.
The event isn’t all about the climb to the summit though. Starting in Appleby, the county town of Westmorland, the route features almost sixty undulating and scenic miles around the Eden Valley and edge of the Lake District before the final 4.4 mile climb begins. With almost 6000 feet of climbing it presents a genuine challenge.
