Peak Epic June 23 2013

anybody else seen this/entered it?
Looks very interesting
Interested - certainly tough - from what I can make out it looks like one that throws in plenty of small lane climbs if you like that kind of thing - route looks a bit convoluted at times but it'd certainly give you a taste of what that area has to offer.
it's a hard life if you don't weaken.
I am the god of hell fire
Broadly agree with the above, many of my favourite bits of tarmac are included in that route
Its a pity the route goes down Abney though, its better as a climb IMO
Also Id be wary of having lots and lots of groups of cyclists out together on small lanes
There isnt room to get two cars abreast down many of those roads
Do sportive organisers need to get advice from Police on route and road safety kind of stuff?
