48 hours | 600km | 13,600m ascent

‘Pure Peak Grit’ (PPG) is a single ride which links together every known categorised climb in the Peak District.
The route is 600km long with over 13,000m of ascent. It includes at least 42 fearsome hills with gradients of between 10-25%.

On 12th July 2019, 10 female cyclists attempted the new Pure Peak Grit challenge:
to ride the PPG route in under 48 hours.
Follow the ‘PPG 2019‘ link to see how they got on, and stay tuned for the open event and challenge in 2020.

Now YOU can also try the PPG route before the official event, by following ‘The Route‘ link in the top left menu.
For using the route, please donate the suggested £5 to the Friends of the Peak District charity.

All route completions can be sent to ‘ride@purepeakgrit.cc
for validation, and inclusion on the Pure Peak Gritter Wall of Fame,
either for general route completion, or if you managed to smash the 48 hour challenge.

Thank you, and we hope to see you next year!

Help us protect the Peak District!

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!!
