48 hours | 600km | 13,600m ascent | 10 powerful women

On 12-14th July 2019, a group of (crazy) female cyclists attempted to cycle every major hill in the Peak District in a single road ride.

The route was 600km long and involved almost 14,000m of climbing!
The ride included 42 fearsome hills, most with whacking gradients ranging 10-25%.

The riders experienced and embraced every part of Britain’s first National Park as they are keen to support conserving it for the future. Please help make their self-inflicted pain easier by supporting them in raising funds to protect the small communities, nature and wildlife of this incredible place. Thank you!!
