Hope Cross Counties

Hope Cross Counties

Sunday 30th August 2020

Inspired by the riding straight from our factory doors, the route criss-crosses the border between Lancashire and Yorkshire. Taking in fantastic scenery and showcasing our local tracks, trails, bridleways and backroads.

Over the years this area has been the test bed for many Hope products, and today these lanes and trails are the ones that many Hope Technology employees ride and train on a day-to-day basis.

This year, to include some friendly competition, we’re adding to the Mastiles Lane Hill Climb with two new super special stages along the way. This is your opportunity to test yourself against the clock, and your friends, to be in with a chance of winning some Hope goodies.


The routes will take riders out from our Barnoldswick Factory, towards the Yorkshire Dales and back, over Weets Hill. Riders will have the choice of whether to tackle to route on a CX bike or mountain bike – both will have their pros and cons. The fastest riders will take around 4.5 hours on the longer route.
