Welcome to the Longridge and North Preston Rotary Club's 6th Cyclo Sportive.

This years ride is again 3 counties and takes you through the village’s of Chipping, Waddington and West Bradford making your way past Grisedale Forrest and Stocks Resevoir into North Yorkshire to Keasden. At this point the 100k route turns right joining the 100 mile route at Settle. From here you go through Clapham and Ingleton then over the fell into Cumbria to Dent where there will be a feed station at 50 miles. 

The road East out of Dent is a delight as it follows the stepped limestone River Dee then onward into North Yorkshire again to the Ribble Head Viaduct where you turn South and follow the River Ribble  to Settle and Giggleswick. From there a gated road to Tosside and back into Lancashire turning West to Newton by Bowland and Dunsop Bridge back to Longridge

As with everything we do as a Rotary Club, all staffing is with volunteers so all our income from events goes to charities and local good causes. Last year we raised £3000 for Prostate Cancer Research.
