610km | 13,600m ascent
Pure Peak Grit‘ (PPG) is a road cycling route linking together every categorised climb in the Peak District National Park, and the ‘Greatest 100 Cycling Climbs’ around it.
The ride is 610km long with over 13,500m of ascent. It includes at least 42 fearsome hills with gradients of between 10-25%.
Our first publicly open PPG event was due to start on 12th June 2020, but had to be postponed due to Covid-19. We hope to be able to bring this event to you in September 2022 – watch this space for further updates.
Whether you can hack the hillage in 48, 72 hours or manage to complete it at all, this unique ride promises an incredible and unique challenge.
PPG is closely tied to the Friends of the Peak District charity, and registering to ride it will put funds directly into conserving this outdoor playground and the communities who depend on it.
