This is a new event for 2021 in the Sprint Series and replaces Pontefract.
The route starts in Penrith and heads North on super quiet roads with spectacular views of Cumbria to the left and North Pennies to the right.
Unlike R1 and R2 this round features a medium and long route which you can choose on the day at the split point.
A feed at a village hall awaits half way round on the long (19miles on the Medium) which will have hot drinks and savoury & sweet food.
This will be a tough test on the legs this early in the season but worth it for the quiet roads and stunning scenery.
The spilt point is at 13miles and its here you can choose if you do the additional 23miles on the long route up to Farlham and Forest Head.
