Phil and Friends – 14th August '05

Fancy cycling some of the most spectacular, beautiful and testing routes in Great Britain whilst raising funds for the CTC to promote safer cycling?

Phil Liggett, the CTC President and Tour de France commentator, invites you to join him for a challenging 150km or 100km ride across some of the best roads the Peak District can offer. The route following parts of the Milk Race which Phil used to organise starts in Stannington, West Sheffield and the ride promises some beautiful scenery and challenging terrain including Winnats Pass and Holme Moss. Part of the route is over the same parcours devised by Liggett for the Milk Races in the 1970s and due to be used again in the Leeds stage of this year’s Tour of Britain.

Liggett said after last year’s ride: “Challenge Rides not only test all abilities but offer a chance to raise funds to make cycling safer for everyone. Record numbers have taken part this year and I would like to thank members of the West Yorkshire CTC District Association whose help made the day possible.”

Please note that places are not limited and you can enter on the day.
Start Times: 150km – 8.00 am, 100km – 9.00 am
