Hutton-in-the-Forest, Penrith, Cumbria, Sunday 28th September 2014. A cracking Cumbrian classic ride including mountain and moorland roads. Starting from the historic home of the Inglewood Family, Hutton-in-the Forest, situated just a few miles from junction 41 on the M6 motorway.

The routes take in some of the best and most challenging cycling roads in Cumbria, a county that is famed as a biking destination. The 93 mile Epic challenge takes in the ascent of the fearsome Honister Pass.  Just the one pass climb but with a whopping 2,700m of ascent, not only will this route challenge you physically and mentally, it will also take you on a beautiful journey on some of the area’s best kept “secret” roads.


Our Standard 60 mile route still packs a punch whilst the Short 34 mile route offers an achievable challenge on Cumbria’s glorious roads.
