The Battle of Bradfield is cancelled this year, but don’t despair as this ride follows the same route! This takes in around 5659ft in just 39.5 miles, so a significant amount of elevation for the distance. The ride will start in Oughtibridge and proceeds straight up Jawbone to warm up before the exciting ride ahead. We’ll be looking to maintain a tempo pace (if we can) but there will be waits at the top of the major climbs for regrouping and no-one will get left behind. There are no planned cafe stops.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARTICIPANTS We recommend that you wear a helmet. Please make sure you wear appropriate clothing for the weather. As usual we do expect you to have ensured your bike is roadworthy and that you have carried out basic pre-ride checks; we recommend that you also carry at least one spare inner tube, a pump (CO2 inflators are also highly recommended). If you have a mechanical problem we will do our best to assist you and/or lend you an inner tube or repair kit if we can, but it is always best to be self-reliant. Don’t forget to bring money for refreshments and a mobile phone.
