Status: The date for the event has not yet been confirmed.

Welcome to The GIRO’s very own Sportive, the aptly named ‘Midland Monster.’

All events start and finish at the Rosliston Forestry Centre, where all facilities are on the one site including free parking, toilets and the Hub cafe.

There are a number of rides to choose from again this year, including the new Mega Monster – a 140 mile challenge that takes the riders through the incredible scenery of the Peak District, Derbyshire Dales and Staffordshire countryside.

We still have the original to Midland Monster – 104 miles, Mezzo Monster – 74 miles, Mini Monster – 40 miles and for the 2nd year, the Family ride of 5-10 miles.

The original routes were designed by John Perks, a former international rider, Falcon professional and National Junior Road Coach. John has now retired from running the Midland Monster but continues to offer his valuable support in the background.

The routes represent a good challenge for all abilities, offering the testing but stunning beauty of the Derbyshire Peaks and Dales as well as the delights of tranquil Staffordshire lanes.

For the benefit of all cyclists, the first 15 miles of the routes are marshalled as riders become accustomed to following over 300 directional arrows and cautionary signs displayed around the whole circuit. Motorcycle marshals will also be on hand to assist with any mechanical issues and feed stations will be available every 35 miles as well as refreshments waiting at the finish.

We welcome back all who have supported us in previous years but if you are thinking of joining us for the first time, expect a well organised and enjoyable event that will challenge all levels of cyclists.

From the positive feedback we have received from previous years, we can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
