Dark Peak Mountain Bike Challenge 2011 - BHF
Just wondered if anyone has done this event before? There are a number of different routes to take and as someone new to both cycling and off roading I'm hoping to have a go regardless of if/when I fall off my bike. I am thinking of doing the London to Brighton off road event which will at least give me some indication to how difficult the Dark Peak event will be. I hope to use this year to build up my biking skills and I plan to start venturing to Cannock Chase when I dusk my bike off from the shed next month. I do live quite close to Sutton Park in Birmingham and I'm not sure if there are any many routes around there or any guys who meet up and don't mind a fat bloke attempting to keep up with them.
