The ever-excellent team at Votwo have a brand new sportive on offer this year. The challenging Hidden Peak ride in Derbyshire has three routes on offer, all designed by Pete Collins, a National Trust volunteer and captain of Sheffield’s Sharrow Cycling Club; 21.98miles, 39.66miles and 80.25miles – each starting out against the stunning backdrop of the National Trust’s Ilam Hall (Race HQ here). From the stunning glacier carved valleys of the White Peak to the atmospheric gritstone edges of the Dark Peak, this is an opportunity to ride largely unexplored and little-known areas with unparalleled levels of support. Entry fees are £27.50 for the long course, £23.50 for the medium and £15 for the short (entries are available on the day at plus £5), with staggered start times from 8.00 – 10.30am.
