Peaks Tour Sportive

Event Venue: Bakewell Showground, Agricultural Way, Bakewell, DE45 1AH

The Peak District is well known for providing some of the very best cycling in the UK and is steeped in riding history - participants of the Peaks Tour Sportive won't be disappointed. With three new routes for 2020, this event takes in the very best of the Peak District National Park and its breathtaking beauty, offering a ride to suit most cyclists abilities. Riders will experience challenging climbs, rolling descents and views that make all the effort worth it.

Heading out from the Bakewell Showground, it doesn’t take long before the first serious climb of the day presents itself as you’ll haul up the hills to get through the historic village of Eyam via Grindleford and Sir William Hill Road, soon moving into Hope Valley. From here the routes push out further north to take on the iconic Mam Tor, which will be a test for any rider.

The next couple of climbs are kinder, at least. They’ll take you up to around the same elevation gain, but they’re more drawn out and less steep. You might prefer a briefer and harsher climb, but there’s no escaping them either way, battling the gradient through Whaley Bridge and beyond.

A final push through to the highest peak of the ride will take you through Burbage and past Macclesfield Forest. From here on in, the hills don’t let up and you’ll tackle constant elevations and drops along the way. The final sting – but by no means the last climb – comes just outside Thorncliffe as you head back to base.

The Peaks Tour Sportive isn’t for the faint-hearted, make no mistake, but you’ll savour completing this tough test for some time to come. It is truly an amazing route!

Post-ride you will be greeted by our welcoming team, where you will have the opportunity to relax, unwind, and socialise with like-minded riding buddies. This is set to be a spectacular summer event that you’ll be bragging about for days after.

Featured Climb: Mam Tor

The Peaks Tour Sportive takes riders up Mam Tor - a category 3 listed climb. With a gradient of 15.6% at the steepest point, the climb is a challenging one and will take some stamina to reach the top. The average gradient comes in at 10% over the 1.3-mile distance and has an elevation gain of 700ft. Fastest times up the climb are listed as 06:14 and 08:21for KOM and QOM respectively. It might be a testing climb but the views make it well worth the effort.

Times and Awards

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing award you achieved, will be displayed on our results page. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.

What our customers say about us

  • A great day out with great staff and well planned.

  • Had one amazing experience. My first 100 miles on the bike in amazing route, friendly staff. Really recommend UK cycling events. Can not wait for the next one.

  • I would just like to say a big thank you to all the marshals and support mechanics on the Wattbike Falkirk Ride on Sunday; the guys were absolutely amazing. We had several issues en route including punctures, cramps, a crash and ever-decreasing morale, but these guys supported us right to the bitter end and got us through the epic course. I have never attended such a well-organised event; even the signage was spot on. So well done and thank you!

  • Did the Watt Bike 40 mile Sportive today, had a lovely time. Great route on quiet roads with challenging hills, all well signposted and a lovely atmosphere. The marshalls & staff deserve a special thank you for standing out for hours in truly gruesome weather. The feed station was well stocked with all needs catered for, the bike wash stocked up with Muc-off products and the soup at the end were the icing on the cake. Southwell racecourse had brilliant facilities. Shame about the weather being freezing cold & sooo wet but totally worth it, had a lot of fun. Thank you to all involved.

  • Well organised, great routes and good support leads to excellence bike rides.
