Hardcore 100

April 08 2018
Derbyshire, East Midlands, UK

The Hardcore100 is an unsupported, unmarshalled adventure on the quiet roads, byways and bridleways of the glorious Peak District National Park.

With over 100 km and 2000 metres of ascent, the event is based on the reliability ride format, where not speed, but the ability to successfully complete an un-signed pre-determined route is the aim.

Our idea is to get riders to think for themselves and not only test their riding skills but their ability to navigate.

The route isaround 30% off road on bridleways and byways. We'd recommend you use either a gravel, cyclocross or mountain bike - using a skinny tyred racing bike would probably result in a good walk. We've tried to pick a route that is rideable whatever the weather and covers varied terrain. We've 30 years experience of riding around this area so hopefully we'll be able to show you some of our favourite trails.

We have purposely not included any feed stations at the event. We would rather you bought food and drink on route to help our local small businesses and contribute to the communities you are riding through.

However there will be tea, coffee and cake available at the event HQ when you get back from your ride. We think you'll have earned it by then !

We'll send you a GPX file with the route details on 48 hours before the event start. This way we can keep you in suspense as long as possible !

The Hardcore100 will explore quiet roads, bridleways and byways of Derbyshire.

Starting and finishing in the village of Holmesfield, the majority of the route will be in the Peak District National Park. Established in 1951 this is the world's second most popular national park and is easily accessible from Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham and Derby. The route will take in some of our favourite parts of this stunning landscape. Our aim is to make this an annual event and change the route each year to keep things interesting. We're limiting the numbers of riders. This is to give the event a low key and hopefully a special feel to it and reduce the impact on the environment.
