Now established as one of the most challenging sportive routes in the UK cycling calendar, the Bradwell Hill Billy has opened entries for the 2016 event, which will be taking place on Sunday 26 June.

Dubbed the Peak District's Fred Whitton due to its tough seven hill route and 2,300m of ascent, the Hill Billy attracts local cyclists as well as those from further afield looking for a day of hardcore cycling taking in a staggeringly beauty, seeing parts of the peak district youve probably never seen before.

First organised to raise money for  Bradwell village Pre School in 2014, the event immediately established itself as one of the most challenging in the Cycle Sportive calendar. This third year of the event is expected to attract 200 cyclists to the Hope Valley village of Bradwell. Laura Mannion, Event Organiser, says, "We know that the Bradwell Hill Billy is one of the toughest sportive routes in the UK, and  we're proud of that. Whether you're an old hand at hardcore cycling, or you want to set yourself an ambitious target for your new 2016 fitness regime, sign up you'll have fun. "We're also very proud of our village hospitality. so your legs may be ready to drop off by the end but we will make it up to you with free soup and homemade cake and flapjack as you finish, if that's any consolation. "You can also feel good knowing that your entry fee is helping to keep our beloved village Pre-School running."
