The Hardest Hundred Sportive Series comes to one of the most beautiful parts of the country in May, the glorious Forest of Bowland.

Tackle the famous Trough of Bowland, the wild & rugged Cross O’Greet and some classic local climbs on this stunning route.

Wild & Beautiful Scenery: Take in views of the coast and the wild moors. This is one of the UK's best kept secrets.
Classic Climbs: A route full of climbing is highlighted by the Top 100 Trough of Bowland but packs plenty of other punches.
Ride the Cross of Greet: One of the best climbs on the route, this rugged road passes a medieval boulder at the highest point of the pass with a thrilling descent that marks the end of the medium route.
