Barnsley Boundary Heroes Ride
Three amazing routes for you to ride. The Classic sticks neatly to the metropolitan boundary of Barnsley and tackles a number of challenging climbs. It totals 80 miles with 2000m of climbing. The Extreme, also 80 miles, adds two notable national hill climbs to the Classic – Pea Royd Lane, and Jackson Bridge, each presenting 25% slopes. Not for the faint hearted
The Ultra is our prestige route and really takes things up many many notches. This route adds in the fearsome Strines - a frightening number of steep and remote climbs in the Peak District. And if that wasn’t hard enough, what follows is epic - Holme Moss, and the Vineyard, a little known climb with 30% slopes. In total it is 96 miles with 3000m of climbing. The word epic is over used but if there was a sportive that deserved it, this is it.
