Ride for Eric is now officially registered through Just Giving! Start your fundraising today www.justgiving.com
There will be lots of activities for young children and families to be involved in on the day, plus for the first time we will be able to operate our family friendly fun ride on the close cycling circuit of Forge Valley. This purely for fun ride passes right around the main activities area so there will be lots of opportunities to cheer and support the novice rides as they pass by. Each rider can set their own challenge to complete as many laps as they wish.
Our brand new routes are as always, planned to accommodate all riders, and our 25K is just the ticket for anyone with a bit of cycling experience under their belt who just wants to challenge themselves and say that they have completer the Ride for Eric 25K. Starting at Forge Valley, the ride commences with a quick lap of the arena, before departing onto Loxley Road and taking in the impressive views across the valley. A lovely spin around Damflask reservoir, and then returns back to Forge Valley for a heroes welcome lap of the arena.
Now we are getting serious, the Ride for Eric 50K is a real challenge for that rider who cycles often but is unsure of their ability. The route is absolutely stunning, taking in Damflask, Low Bradfield, Dale Dike and Strines before descending into Ladybower and Hope Valley. This route really is a lovely way to test your ability and see what 50K of the Peak District looks and feels like. Perfect for the rider who is developing and is ready for this stunning challenge.
A serious ride, for serious riders. Just take a look at the profile of this ride and then decide if your up for our best ever 100K route. This ride has been created to challenge even the most hardy 100K Sunday rider, but takes in some stunning scenery as you tootle around the Peak District and Derbyshire.
We were impressed with how laid back the event was (even with live traffic in the car park!) Great organising by your team and we were proud to be a part of it
I really enjoyed being part of a safe, well organised and enjoyable event with lots of camaraderie and a common purpose – I’ll be there for Ride for Eric 2017!
Thank you for giving up your time for such worthy causes and it was a pleasure for me and Jim to be a small part of it. We look forward to taking party next year (me hopefully doing the 50k – I’m in training for it already!!)
A really enjoyable and very worthwhile day. Well done to you and all who organised it. I’m sure Eric would have been very proud of what you and the team undertook in his memory.
