Velo Club Long Eaton are holding another of their great reliability rides on 25th February... be sure to turn up and support us.

Epic Route (103 Miles)

Commences with a relatively flat 30 miles before the first testing hill leaving Ashbourne quickly followed by the ‘classic climb’ up to Longcliffe before descending to Grangemill then turns towards Bakewell.  There is a second climb near Froggatt.  The route curls around Chatsworth House before joining up with the Long Route.  The return leg is flat along the A6 to Milford and Makeney then the aptly named Red Lane climb to Holbrooke and the final climb of Sandy Lane from Coxbench to Morley Smithy.

Long Route (71 Miles)

Commences with a relatively flat 30 miles before the first testing hill leaving Ashbourne quickly followed by the ‘classic climb’ up to Longcliffe before descending to Grangemill then the lower four mile section of the Via Gellia into Cromford.  The return leg is flat along the A6 to Milford and Makeney then the aptly named Red Lane climb to Holbrooke and the final climb of Sandy Lane from Coxbench to Morley Smithy.

Short Route (39 miles)

A predominantly flat ride along the River Trent and River Dove valleys, the only significant climb is the short Tutbury bypass after 19 miles where the route turns for the return along the river valleys.
