Hope Pre-Peaks

7:30am (First wave)
Pre-Peaks

Inspired by the Three Peaks Cyclo Cross, one of our favourite cycling events, Hope Technology have created our own local version taking in some of the best scenery in the Yorkshire Dales with a healthy mix of roads, tracks and paths along the route.The Three Peaks is known amongst those who have attempted it, to be one of the toughest races out there. Here at Hope we have a long love affair with the event, with numerous staff and riders competing over the years. In fact, it's sort of a tradition that you aren’t a true employee until you’ve done the Peaks!Given the toughness of the Peaks, we thought why not organise an event equally as tough as the Peaks, either as a warm up for the big event or as a taster for those not lucky enough to get an entry to the Peaks.

Routes
The routes will take riders out from our Barnoldswick Factory, over Weets Hill directly towards the Yorkshire Dales and back, via a few “testing” climbs. As happens in the Yorkshire Dales on the Three Peaks Cyclo Cross race, competitors will have to carry their bikes on several of the climbs and paths as well as using local roads on the transitions. 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 3.5 hours on the longer route.
