We have spaces for up to 200 riders so don't miss out.

Payment for both rides is £22 and you will receive goodies as part of your entry.

The Savage Fox (named after the late Sean Patrick Savage) is a tough ride that will test those legs and we suggest you start training now to get some hills into the legs.

Both Routes offer some stunning cycling in and around the Forest of Bowland on favourite routes chosen by our committee.
