Derbyshire, the Peak District & Staffordshire
We are making some changes for the event this year – the start and finish will be at the Pavilion Gardens in Buxton. This picturesque venue provides excellent facilities and is on the doorstep of some of the most glorious Derbyshire landscape. We can guarantee the scenery will, as usual, be stunning and by moving slightly north we are able to use some areas we couldn’t reach before. We are sure you will appreciate the change.
The route will cover approximately 120 miles on tarmac roads all as defined in a comprehensive road book incorporating the route instructions. No additional maps are required but should you wish to bring your own maps, the route will be found on OS Landranger maps 110 and 119. The Final Instructions will include a navigational exercise and an outline route.
Places for coffee and rest stops will be available en route whilst the lunch break will be taken at Carsington Water near Ashbourne. A picnic lunch box will be provided at the start; however you may bring your own picnic or catering is available at Carsington Water. At the finish back at the Pavilion Gardens there will be a buffet meal.
Regulations and an entry form are available now and can be downloaded from www.derbyshiredalesdrive.co.uk.
