A brand new event for 2019 that is set to become a ‘must do’ early season sportive, following in the footsteps of York – Leeds – York and the Cheshire Cat. Not many sportives can boast a true town centre start but we have secured the lovely St Peters Square in Stockport to begin this new event. With views and scenery to rival most sportives in the UK Manchester Sheffield Manchester (MSM) is an absolute belter. Of course there are climbs and MSM does not disappoint, in fact the long is one of our toughest rides! Each route has its fair share of elevation gain with the medium and long routes tackling the iconic ‘Snake Pass’.
Each route will have our award winning food at the feed stations with the long route having a feed at Hillsborough, home of Sheffield Wednesday FC.
