You’ve got your bike, you’re getting fit and you can’t get enough of riding – sound familiar?
If so, then it’s time to take your riding to the next level by taking on the Marie Curie Cancer Care Etape Pennines. Taking place on the 7th October 2012, the Marie Curie Cancer Care Etape Pennines is a 78 mile cycling event which takes place on completely closed roads. Yep, that’s right, no stubborn motorists cutting you up, no breathing in fumes from a buses exhaust, and certainly no traffic lights – just 3,000 fellow riders, amazing scenery and an atmosphere to match.
The inaugural Etape Pennines is due to make history by being the first closed road cycling event to take place in England. Sister event to the Marie Curie Cancer Care Etape Caledonia, arguably Britain’s most popular cycling event, Etape Pennines is set to rival Etape Caledonia in terms of sheer beauty and undulating terrain. Rob Hayles, former British Olympic cyclist and World and Commonwealth Champion, will also be making his way around the approx 78 mile closed road route giving help and advice to riders of all abilities along the way, so you certainly have no excuse to be slacking up the hills!
With only a few places remaining, we advise that you enter soon to avoid disappointment. Click here to view our preview video, take a look at the route and enter now!
