Firmly established as a highlight of challenge ride calendar, the CTC's annual 'Phil & Friends' ride returns on Sunday August 13. You can join Tour commentator and CTC president Phil Ligget on the 150 mile trip around the Peak District.
The route takes in some of the Peak's most beautiful scenery and includes the legendary climbs of Winnats Pass and Holme Moss.
As with all of the CTC's challenge rides, proceeds from the event go to the organisation's Charitable Trust, which represents the interests of cyclists in the UK. One of their most recent and high-profile successes was changing the proposed advice in the Highway Code with respect to the compulsory use of cycle paths. Now's your chance to help fund this important work that affects every UK cyclist.
Three distances are available - the full 150 mile, a shorter 100 miler and a 'family' route. Entry is £10 for CTC and Audax UK members, or £12 for non-members.
Telephone the CTC on 0870 873 0060 or email email@example.com to find out more. Alternatively, click here to go to the Phil & Friends site including online entry form.
