The Lakeland Loop Cycle Sportive, A North West Classic, April 27th

One of the original North West sportives, the 69 miles Lakeland Loop is a classic spring ride. The course includes 2 feed stops at Lorton School and Santon Bridge, before tackling the mighty Wrynose and Hardknott Passes. LL1_0048Don’t think that these are the only 2 hills on the course, that would be your first error!! This course is challenging from the outset and there’s little respite and you progress through the miles.

Even when you think the worst is over, there’s a final ‘sting in the tail’ past Blea Tarn which has many riders walking and pushing. The start venue couldn’t be more picturesque, based in the stunning Langdale Valley, with the Langdale Pikes as your homing beacons. Don’t miss out on this North West classic, register now by clicking here
