The route will take riders out from our Barnoldswick Factory, over Weets hill directly towards the Yorkshire Dales and back, via a few “testing” climbs. As happens in the Yorkshire Dales on the Three Peaks Cyclo Cross race, competitors will have to carry their bikes on several of the climbs and paths as well as using local roads on the transitions. Riders will have the choice of whether to tackle to route on a CX bike or mountain bike – both will have their pros and cons. The fastest riders will take around 3.5 hours.
