The unspoilt beauty and rugged terrain of the Peak District National Park is the backdrop for this charity cycling sportive. Starting from Sheffield, riders will quickly find themselves in a wilderness that is a cycling paradise on this bike ride raising funds for Action Medical Research. The Peak District 100 is a ‘must do’ event featuring well known climbs across the route options.
The Cool 41 mile route is ideal for riders new to cycling whilst the Classic 74 mile route has more hills. For experienced cyclists and regular Sportive riders the Champion route at 101 miles features all the climbs and will push you to the limit!
Join the Action Medical Research team on this epic cycling event and enjoy a great day in the saddle with first class support throughout the day.
What the riders said
Only my second event (did the 75 miler) and I have to say that other organisers have a lot to live up to. Great signage, fantastic food, awesome volunteers and a sports massage to boot at the finish. All this and more made what was a tough challenge quite bearable. Fantastic feeling of achievement at the finish and it was great to see all the friendly faces at the finish that were made along the route - great camaraderie! Thank you AMR.
Fantastic day. Organisation couldnt be better. Well signposted. Great feed stops.
My first 100 miles and some really tough climbs. In fact one around every corner.
Will definitely be doing more. Met some great people on the day.. many thanks to Catherine for your much needed encouragement.
Awesome day out. Spectacularly beautiful route. Awesome climbs with alpine scenery. Well organised in every sense. Spectacular cycling. Really tough in places, but not overly tough overall. Could not recommend more highly.
I have to thank AMR for making my first ever cycling event hugely enjoyable, challenging and rewarding. The route was well-thought out with stunning scenery and minimal traffic. The food was fantastic and much-appreciated. I took full advantage of the post-ride massage too. Overall, a fantastic experience. Can't wait for the next one!
Probably the best organised and best routed sportive I have ridden in the UK.. This event was tougher and far better organised than the Dragon Ride - it should become a classic getting 3000 riders!
