Taking part in The Bike Challenge?

  • The start and finish line is in the small village of Hade Edge, above Holmfirth; some say it was the last place God made! Click here for a map

  • The Challenge has 3 routes starting at 0900: the main route for those feeling up to the full challenge is about 30 miles but there are 2 shorter options (~20 & ~15 miles) also available. You can change this on the day, just let us know of any changes when you finish. All the routes consist of a combination of demanding off-road terrain and local roads and lanes. Click the link on the left to view the routes.

  • Please register and collect your Entrant number when you arrive at the Event. Registration will be open between 0800 and 0845. The Event will commence at 0900 PROMPT.

  • The registration marquee will be in the Hade Edge Recreation Ground that is situated on the B6106 Dunford Road. Travel along Dunford Road from the centre of Holmfirth for approximately 2 miles. The recreation ground can be seen on your right hand side just past Longley Farm and opposite the Algy Arms pub.

  • Free parking is available: please follow the signs and marshalls to the designated parking areas; please try to avoid causing obstruction for the local residents at all times.

  • Refreshments will be provided at strategic points around the route and in the marquee at the completion of the event.
