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

On 12th July 2019, 10 female cyclists attempted the new ‘Pure Peak Grit’ challenge:
to ride the Pure Peak Grit (PPG) route in under 48 hours.

PPG is a single ride which links together every known categorised climb in the Peak District, and many ‘Top 100’ climbs surrounding it. The route is 380 miles long, and over 13,000m of ascent. It includes at least 42 fearsome hills with gradients of between 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!!
