Adventure Cross series provides a cross-country challenge by bike in some of the country's most picturesque locations
Cycling Weekly’s 2014 Adventure Cross Series, proudly sponsored by Evans Cycles, kicks off on Sunday, April 27, with the Grizedale Grizzly in Cumbria.
Cycling Weekly has expanded its Adventure Cross Series for 2014, now including five events in Cumbria, Wales, North Yorkshire and Scotland.
Adventure Cross is the new event discipline for cyclists, incorporating both road, off road tracks, trails bridleways and lanes – a cross-country adventure by bike.
The courses are challenging but with two route choices you can decide what suit’s your ability. All routes are designed to be ridden with knobbly tyres whether that’s on your cyclo-cross bike or mountain bike, you decide.
You can find out more details and enter the events online at www.bookmyride.co.uk.
Don’t be fooled by the gentle, rolling start from the pastoral beauty of our event HQ at Cartmel Race Course. This is Lake District Adventure Cross riding after all… fast forest sections are interspersed with tough tricky trails, fantastic fire roads and lovely lanes – the sort with grass down the middle. For the most part the routes are in the true heart of the Lake District and there’s plenty of cracking Cumbrian climbs.
